The woman who died after she was hit by an SUV on U.S. Highway 50 in Howard on Friday has been identified.
Tracy Roe, 54, frequented the Canon City area, although officials are not sure where she lived, said Fremont County Coroner Randy Keller.
Roe was in the eastbound lane of the highway at about 7:15 p.m. when she was struck by the vehicle, according to a news release from Colorado State Patrol.
The driver of the SUV, a Howard resident, pulled over to the shoulder of the road. The pedestrian was pronounced dead on scene.
Authorities are investigating if Roe was under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Speed was not a factor in the crash. No charges had been filed as of Saturday, according to State Patrol.
