She was then hit again by a sheriff’s office vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.
Authorities say the woman’s name and other details about the crash won’t be released until the NHP completes an investigation and notifies the victim’s family.
The officer involved is on paid administrative leave and will be identified Friday.
