Authorities say an Arizona woman died after being hit by two vehicles while crossing a highway in Farmington.
The San Juan County Sheriff’s Office said one of the two vehicles that struck 36-year-old Lucinda John of Red Valley, Ariz., is being sought.
Sheriff’s officials said John had just left a casino when she decided to walk across U.S. 64 on Tuesday night. The Sheriff’s Office said a Chevrolet Malibu first hit John and then a truck struck her.
Authorities said the driver of the Malibu later returned to the scene to find out what he had hit. Sheriff’s Lt. Lisa Haws said it doesn’t appear the driver of the Malibu was speeding.
Haws told The Daily Times that authorities are looking for the truck involved in the accident.
