Truscott told police that the woman was walking east on the highway, and that he had slammed on his brakes when he saw her. He stated that the car skidded and the rear of the vehicle struck her. She received a fractured skull, brain and chest injuries and a fractured leg, and for 12 hours remained unidentified at hospital. Identification was made by her husband.
