BETHESDA, Md. (AP) — Police say a 76-year-old West Virginia woman was struck by a car and killed while crossing a busy four-lane road in a residential section of Bethesda.

Montgomery County police say Nancy Laulis of Bridgeport, W.Va., was not in a crosswalk when she was hit around 2:30 p.m. Thursday.

The driver who struck her remained at the scene.

Laulis was taken to a nearby hospital, where she died.

    Kind of a bad decision with no crosswalk but I also know these drivers race like crazy on residential streets. Would be willing to bet it was the fault of both parties.

      don’t matter whose at fault the bottom line is a person is dead, what is one of the first things our parents teach us when we are kids, stay out of the street, look both ways, and what is it taught when driving, at least it used to be use CAUTION in residential streets for pedestrians and kids, it’s sad but it seems we have all forgotten these basic rules, our lives get busier and we can’t slow down or always in a hurry, but 2 ton of car versus 100 pounds of body who is going to win, answer is neither one.
