A Vidor woman died Tuesday night when she walked into the path of an oncoming 18 wheeler.

The woman, who was identified as 42 year old Wilma Ritter, stepped out into Interstate 10, and into the path of the truck at about 8:30 pm.

Justice of the Peace Derry Dunn said Ritter, of Vidor, apparently sent a text to an out of town relative, then walked into the east bound lane of traffic near FM 1132, in an apparent suicide.

The case is under investigation.
