Pedestrian Struck on I-74 Near Shelbyville

Shelbyville, IN - A Shelbyville woman was struck by a car and killed while walking on I-74 late last night. 

April 5th, at approximately 11:50 p.m. emergency crews were called to reports of a pedestrian struck on I-74 eastbound near the 110 mile marker. Upon arrival they found a deceased female in the roadway along with two vehicles that had possibly struck her. The deceased pedestrian has been identified as 33 year old Laura Goode of Shelbyville. 

Based on on preliminary investigation police believe Ms. Goode was crossing I-74 when she was initially struck by a 2010 Mazda, driven by Rebecca Weightman of Waldron Indiana. A second vehicle, a 2001 Hyundai driven by Mark Collins of Shelbyville, slid off into the median trying to avoid the remains of the deceased. At this point investigators are unsure if Collins struck Ms. Goode. Both drivers were tested for alcohol per protocol of any fatal crash, however alcohol is not believed to be a factor. 

This is an ongoing investigation and no further information is available at this time.
