Details about the Accident that Killed the Woman

According to TMJ 4 News in Milwaukee, the woman was walking near the intersection of Highway 164 and Sunset when she was hit by a vehicle. When police and emergency crews arrived at the scene of the accident, they found the woman and began trying to save her life.

People in the area say that there are apartments and condos near the intersection where the accident happened, and you can often find residents walking across the street to the gas station.

One resident says that neighbors, including children, walk through the intersection often, but that the intersection has not been known to be a dangerous area.

The woman was taken to Waukesha Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced dead. One of the neighbors expressed their shock about the accident, especially since a crosswalk and stop lights were added to the intersection just this summer.

Police are still investigating the accident, and trying to figure out where the woman was going when she was hit by the vehicle. There is no word about the driver of the vehicle that hit the woman.
