EDINBURG, TX (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — A woman is dead after being hit by a vehicle early this morning in Edinburg.
It happened at approximately 6:00 a.m. on Frontage Road off Hwy 281 near David Rd. Police tell us the driver of a white Chevy pickup truck hit a female victim, who has recently been identified as 47-year-old Shelly Leigh Schulze.
Witnesses and the driver told police that Schulze was walking in the middle of the street. The driver did stop to render aid to the victim, but she passed away from the impact.
Schulze's address is listed in McAllen, but she was recently in a Salvation Army according to police. Her next of kin lives in Alaska and it is not known if Schulze had any mental conditions that would cause her to wander in the street.
No charges are likely to emerge in this case.
