A Smackover woman was killed Monday evening while trying to cross Arkansas 7 on foot in Union County, authorities said.

The accident happened a little after 6 p.m., state police said.

The Camry’s driver and passenger were unhurt.

Taylor was the 505th person to die in a traffic accident in Arkansas so far this year, according to preliminary figures.
