Unified Police Lt. Justin Hoyal said 64-year-old Linda Olson was crossing the street with a friend at about 6 p.m. when a Comcast truck traveling east struck the Millcreek resident. The other woman with Olson was not hit.
Emergency workers transported Olson to University Hospital, but she was pronounced dead at the facility.
Hoyal said detectives are still questioning the driver and the investigation into the crash will likely take several weeks. Hoyal said it did not appear that excessive speed was a factor in the crash. While Olson was crossing the street at a crosswalk, Hoyal said there are no stop lights at the intersection and it is hard to see in the dark.
