Pedestrian Struck on I-95 in Delaware, Killed

Posted: Updated:

NEWARK, Del. (WBOC/AP)- Authorities say an Oklahoma woman has died after getting out of her car on Interstate 95 and being struck by a car.

Delaware State Police said the incident occurred shortly after 9 p.m. Sunday in Newark, near the Maryland state line, in the highway's northbound lanes.

Police said 54-year-old Connie Gullion of Moore, Oklahoma, was driving in the middle lane of the highway when she suddenly slowed and swerved into a median crossover. Police say that caused another car to swerve and stop on the highway's right shoulder.

According to police, Gullion got out of her car and attempted to cross the highway, possibly to check on the other driver, when she was struck. The force of the impact vaulted Gullion onto the windshield of the other car before she was thrown to the ground in the right-hand lane of I-95.

Gullion was taken to Christiana Hospital Trauma Center, where she was pronounced dead from multiple blunt force trauma.

Neither the 37-year-old driver of the other car, identified as a 37-year-old Pennsylvania woman, nor her two juvenile female passengers, were injured, police said.

Troopers said their investigation continues.
