MONETA (WSLS 10) - A Huddleston woman died late last week after being hit by a pickup truck in Moneta.

State Police say Leiben Patrick, 36, was walking in the road when she was hit by a Chevy Silverado driving southbound on Route 122 near Route 903.  The incident was reported to State Police at 4:43 p.m. Thursday.

Police say Patrick was walking the same direction as the truck and that there was a car in the opposite lane so the Silverado couldn't avoid Patrick. She died at the scene.

Police have not charged the 17-year-old pickup truck driver from Moneta. He was not injured and was wearing a seat belt.

The crash remains under investigation and as of Monday afternoon, no charges have been filed.
