Woman walking on I-279 struck, killed early today

FRANKLIN PARK, Allegheny County — State police were trying to figure out why a woman was walking in a vehicle lane before she was struck and killed this morning by a motorist on Interstate 279.
The incident happened in the northbound lanes of I-279 about 4 a.m. today, in the suburb of Franklin Park. That’s about 10 miles north of Pittsburgh.
The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s office has confirmed the woman’s death, but did not immediately release her identity.
