LANCASTER – A woman walking in the roadway was hit and killed by a car early Thursday morning, authorities said.
The fatal collision happened around 6:44 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 27, on Avenue I east of 25th Street East in Lancaster, according to a news release from the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station.
“Preliminary information gathered at the scene revealed a female adult was walking in the roadway of Avenue I during the pre-dawn hours of Thursday morning. A Nissan sedan, being driven by a female adult, was [traveling] east on Avenue I passing 25th Street East when the pedestrian walked in front of [the vehicle],” the news release states.
“The driver of the Nissan saw the pedestrian just before colliding with her and attempted to avoid the collision,” the news release states.
The Nissan struck the pedestrian, and the pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.
She was identified as 58-year-old Bonnie Kay Kossel of Lancaster, coroner’s Assistant Chief Ed Winter said Thursday afternoon.
