By Emily M. Gurney, Fortune December 19, 2016 12:38:33A woman died on a highway in Virginia last week after she was struck by a semi while she was driving a woman to the pharmacy, police said.
A woman was killed in a crash on Interstate 80 in Richmond last week.
She was in the right lane, in front of a semi in the median, when it struck her, said Lt.
Jason Bittles with the Richmond Police Department.
The woman was driving east on Interstate 20 in Richmond when a truck driving westbound struck the front of the vehicle and drove over her, Bittls said.
The woman’s car was also hit by the semi.
The driver of the truck, who was not injured, was taken to a local hospital with nonlife-threatening injuries, he said.
Bittles said investigators are trying to determine if the woman was trying to get to a pharmacy, and the crash could have been prevented.
