HOMESTEAD (KDKA) — A woman was struck by a vehicle and killed early Friday morning while crossing a road in Homestead.
Homestead police say 73-year-old Ludmilla Kondrashov was crossing Waterfront Drive between the Red Robin restaurant and the GetGo when she was hit.
Police say it was still dark outside when the accident happened around 6 a.m.
According to the police chief, the driver, a man in his late 50’s, had the green light at the time.
Police say there is no word right now on whether or not the driver was speeding, but did say the man was shaken up.
Authorities say several witnesses stopped to try and help the woman.
“As I understand before I arrived on the scene, there were actually two or three nurses in the area at the time of the accident, they did stop to render aid, medics were on scene and they transported the victim to the hospital,” said Chief Jeff DeSimone, of the Homestead Police Department.
Accident reconstruction crews had the road blocked off most of the morning. It has since reopened.
Police say they don’t anticipate any criminal charges against the driver. But they do say there could be inspection violation charges.
