A 74-year-old Green Forest woman was fatally struck after she stepped in front of a vehicle Wednesday afternoon, troopers said.
The crash happened shortly before 5:30 p.m. on Arkansas 103, just south of the Arkansas 21 intersection in Oak Grove, according to a preliminary report by Arkansas State Police. A 2003 Toyota headed south hit Linda R. Bloomquist as she crossed into its path, the report states.
Troopers said Bloomquist died as a result of her injuries.
Conditions were clear and dry at the time of the crash, the report states.
Preliminary figures indicate at least 551 people have died as a result of crashes on Arkansas roads so far this year.
