A Washington County deputy accidentally ran over a woman late Monday night, police said.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Department said it received a call around 11:15 p.m. about a woman named Barbara Gross possibly driving while intoxicated.

A responding deputy found debris on state Highway 8 that appeared to be from the same car as the one that Gross was driving. The deputy removed the debris and kept driving on Highway 8 looking for Gross.

Police said the deputy eventually made his way onto Old Highway 8E. As he approached a road known as the Hopewell turnoff, he hit Gross.

Gross was taken to a hospital, but later died.

The Missouri Highway Patrol is investigating.
