BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A 32-year-old woman has life-threatening injuries after being struck by a vehicle on I-95 in Cecil County, according to Maryland State Police.

Police say the auto-pedestrian crash happened just after 9:30 a.m. Sunday, near the 109 exit on I-95 South in Elkton.

Investigators say Sarah Elizabeth Gotfredson got out of her car on the shoulder for unknown reasons and walked onto the highway.

Several vehicles avoided Gotfredson before she was struck by a box truck.

She was taken to Christiana Hospital in Delaware with life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the box truck remained on scene. No other injuries were reported.

All lanes of I-95 South were closed with traffic getting by on the right shoulder and delays stretching back to the Delaware state line. The lanes were reopened by noon.

No further details have been released as MSP continues its investigation.
