The witness also said the light for southbound traffic was green. The pedestrian died from their injuries at the scene.

The press release states that originally, the passenger of the truck said she was the driver. Later, the actual driver of the truck admitted to driving and said he lied because his driver’s license was revoked. Both the driver’s and passenger’s statements regarding the accident lined up with the witness.

Officials say speed or alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash. This remains under investigation.
