A pedestrian who was fatally struck Monday evening on North Courthouse Road in Chesterfield County lived in a neighborhood about a mile south of where she was killed.
Police identified the victim as Sheryl Y. Vick, 53, who lived in the 10800 block of Keithwood Parkway in the Hylton Park subdivision off Courthouse Road.
About 7:25 p.m., Vick was walking north in the right turn lane of North Courthouse Road onto Southlake Boulevard, when she was struck by a Ford Focus attempting to turn right onto Southlake Boulevard, Chesterfield police said in a release. The crash site is about a half-mile south of Midlothian Turnpike.
The driver immediately stopped. Vick lived in the first subdivision south of the crash site on the east side of Courthouse Road.
She was taken to a local hospital, where she died.
Sgt. James Lamb, supervisor of the police department’s crash team, said Vick was wearing dark clothes and had been walking in the bicycle lane along Courthouse Road before merging into the right-hand turn lane at Southlake Boulevard. The driver of the car didn’t see her when he turned, Lamb added.
Lamb said police haven’t determined Vick’s walking destination.
