SAN ANTONIO – The Bexar County Medical Examiner is working to identify a woman who was hit by a pickup truck and killed Tuesday night on a Southeast Side street.

San Antonio police have not released a lot of details on the crash, but they say so far it appears to be an accident.

The crash happened around 9:30 p.m. in the 2000 block of S. W.W. White Road.

According to police, the woman in her 60s was walking across the street from west to east not in a crosswalk when she stopped in the right lane to motion for an oncoming vehicle to slow down. That’s when, police said, a Ford F150 traveling northbound did not see the woman.

Police said the driver of the truck at the last minute tried to swerve, but was unable to avoid hitting the woman.

After the crash, the driver and a passenger inside the truck did stop and try to help her, police said.

The woman was taken by EMS to an area hospital in critical condition, where she later died. The woman did not have identification and she has not yet been positively identified, police said.

SAPD said they have no plans at this time to pursue any charges against the driver.
