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.
DPS said that a truck driving toward her stopped, but a car coming in the other direction hit her after their view was blocked by the truck.
Maradiaga was initially taken to the hospital but she died a short time later.
