Woman Dies After Being Hit By Truck

A 57-year-old woman was hit by a truck and died near Henrietta Thursday morning.

The accident happened just before 4:30 a.m. on Highway 287 at Lone Star Road.

D.P.S. Trooper Tony Fulton tells us a Land Rover was parked on the shoulder of the road, but didn't have any lights or hazards on. An 18-wheeler was heading northbound. The truck driver saw the Land Rover and moved over to the lefthand lane, but Lucretia Avery was in the center of the highway and was hit.

Her body was taken to Tarrant county for an autopsy.
