A 20 year old woman from Orange died in an auto-pedestrian accident that occurred last night around 6:30 p.m. Molly Martin’s car had run out of gas while traveling eastbound on I-10 in Vidor. She pulled on to the service road and began walking to a convenience store for help when she was hit.

A man driving a pick-up truck claims he did not see Martin walking when he hit her because she was wearing dark clothing. He did stop to check on her.  Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Judge David Peck pronounced Martin dead at 7:30 p.m. Her body was transported to Jefferson County Morgue and an autopsy has been ordered.

The Vidor Police are investigating the accident.
