AUSTIN (KXAN) — A woman who died after she was hit by a car in south Austin Friday morning has been identified by the Texas Department of Public Safety.

DPS said Rosemary Maradiaga, 33, was killed while crossing the street at a non-working crosswalk signal.

The collision happened at 6:43 a.m. in front of the IDEA Bluff Springs School on Slaughter Lane near Bluff Springs Road, according to the Travis County Sheriff’s Office.
