KINSTON, N.C. (AP) — The N.C. State Highway Patrol says a woman attempting to cross a five-lane highway was killed when she was struck by a car whose driver didn’t stop. The patrol told news outlets that 43-year-old Amy Jo Tyndall and a second person were trying to cross N.C. Highway 11 near Ashland Drive just outside of Kinston in Lenoir County around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday. The patrol says the highway has four travel lanes, a center turn lane and was not lighted. Tyndall was in the roadway when a vehicle traveling north hit her and kept going. Tyndall died at the scene. The second pedestrian wasn’t hurt.
