Police in Tuscaloosa have identified the woman who was fatally struck by a passing vehicle as she walked on McFarland Boulevard early Monday morning.

As the Thread previously reported, the woman was struck by at least one vehicle around 4 a.m. Monday and the driver stopped and reported the collision to Tuscaloosa Police. Officers initially thought a second vehicle struck the woman and kept driving, but said Tuesday they no longer believe that to be the case.
