GREAT FALLS - A woman who was struck by a car on a city street died of her injuries early Friday, police said.
The victim was Susan Benson, 54, of Great Falls, according to the Cascade County sheriff's office.
Witnesses told officers the woman was walking along the street at about 11 p.m. Thursday when she suddenly turned right and walked into traffic, apparently without looking. Benson died at the hospital about three hours later.
No charges have been filed against the driver, who was alone in the vehicle when the accident occurred. The name of the driver, a 20-year-old Great Falls woman, was not released.
Bill Shepherd, an investigator with the Great Falls Police Department, said neither speed nor alcohol appeared to be a factor.
