VALLEYVIEW — An 18-year-old woman who was walking in the middle of a northern Alberta highway in the dark was struck be two vehicles and died Saturday evening.
The teen, whose name has not been released, was a resident of the Sturgeon Lake Cree Nation near Valleyview.
Police say the woman was walking near the centre of the west-bound lane of Highway 43 at around 8 p.m. when she was hit by a pickup truck.
She was thrown across the road and then struck by an east-bound semi-trailer, which stopped briefly and then left the scene.
RCMP have called in collision analysts and are also asking the semi driver to contact them as part of their investigation.
But the Mounties say no charges are anticipated at this time.
