FIRST REPORT

A woman who stepped out of her car to check on a dog she had hit was then struck and killed in a hit-and-run crash.

Officials said a woman from Anna was killed in the crash, which was reported just before 11 p.m. Wednesday in the 10,000 block of Sidney Freyburg Road.

Deputies said it appears the woman got out of her car to check on a dog that she apparently hit with her car. A vehicle then came along and struck the female, and the vehicle left the scene.
