(KMOV) – A woman was killed after being struck by a vehicle in the Central West End Thursday morning.
Authorities say 63-year-old Nancy Benson was walking across the street in the 4500 block of Lindell around 7 a.m. when she was hit.
She was taken to the hospital, where she died around 10 a.m.
According to police, the driver told officers he did not see the Benson because of her dark clothing and inclement weather. He stopped at the scene after the wreck.
Lindell was closed between Taylor and Euclid while crews cleaned up the scene. It has since reopened.
