A woman walking along Battlefield Memorial Highway in Berea was struck and killed by a car late Thursday night, Kentucky Police said.

It happened around 9:30 on Battlefield Memorial Highway, north of Highway 21, Kentucky State Police Post 7 officials said.

The Madison County Coroner said the 38-year-old Heather Holwerda was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to police officials, the road doesn't have much of a shoulder to walk along and that the woman was believed to be in the street when she was struck.

According to state police, the driver stayed on the scene and cooperated with troopers, but was arrested on an unrelated warrant. No charges were filed in connection to the accident as of late Thursday evening.
