LAKESIDE PARK, Ky. -- A woman was killed when a pickup truck hit her during Monday morning's rush hour.
At about 6:55 a.m., the Lakeside Park-Crestview Hills Police Department received report of a pedestrian struck at Dixie Highway and Turkeyfoot Road.
Judith Boyd was found dead at the scene. James Rice, the pickup truck's driver, stayed until police arrived. He was not hurt. Both Boyd and Rice lived in Lakeside Park.
The Lakeside Park-Crestview Hills Police Department is handling the crash investigation. At this point, there's no evidence to support criminal charges, Police Chief Christopher J. Schutte said.
People who live nearby say traffic has picked up along Dixie Highway, but the foot traffic isn't anything new.
"It's a very active neighborhood -- a lot of walkers in this neighborhood, a lot of joggers in this neighborhood," Loretta Morgan said. "I walk a lot of dogs in this neighborhood, and it's very unfortunate."
A bus stop at the corner of Dixie Highway and Hudson Avenue is just one cause for concern. Neighbors say people often try to cross the road during the busiest times of the day.
"Sure, in your car you have to be careful, but I think you have to be aware as a walker, runner and jogger that you have to watch the cars and don't just assume that they see you," Amy Larsen said.
Speed is another concern: The posted speed limit is 35 mph, but residents say drivers rarely obey it.
Lisa Mayer had some advice for drivers in a hurry: "The best thing is just to slow down, take a deep breath, and you'll get there."
Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call 859-331-5368.
