Authorities have identified a 44-year-old woman who was fatally injured after being struck by a pickup when she crossed South Cooper Street on Wednesday.

Tracy Slaughter of Arlington died in the operating room at Medical Center of Arlington after the crash, according to a press release from the Tarrant County medical examiner’s office.

Police said the crash did not occur at a crosswalk and that Slaughter walked in front of the pickup, which was traveling south in the 2800 block of South Cooper Street.
