A Clio woman was struck and killed Thursday after exiting her vehicle due to a prior crash, according to a preliminary investigation by the Alabama Law Enforcement Agent (ALEA).

Angelia Joan Pendleton, 50, was critically injured when she was struck by a Ford F150 driven by Raymundo Rivera-Bravoe, 64, of Louisville. Pendleton was transported to Dale Medical Center where she died of her injuries a short time later.

“The preliminary investigation indicates that Pendleton was involved in a crash moments before, and she was outside her vehicle when she was struck by the Ford,” Cook said.
