Waynesboro Police are investigating a fatal car crash from Tuesday night.
It happened Wednesday night just after 9 p.m. on Lew Dewitt Blvd near Bookerdale Rd.
Police said 33-year old Sheilah Woods, from Waynesboro, was hit by an SUV. Police said no one else was injured. They believe poor infrastructure may be to blame.
Police told a WHSV reporter drivers would not be on the look out for a person because the area just is not safe for anyone to be out walking.
The area of the incident was not planned for pedestrians. It is an extremely busy roadway and there are no sidewalks. Lighting is limited.
The area is known for several accidents involving deer in the fall.
Waynesboro Police said the city is growing and they may need to start thinking about creating safer walking conditions.
“Our West end is growing. We're seeing a lot of growth. This area could grow more. If it's going to grow more, the police department is going to need some infrastructure improvements,” said Sgt. Brian Edwards with the Waynesboro Police Department.
This is the second time a pedestrian has died in Waynesboro in the past three months. In April, a 56-year-old woman was walking on Rosser Ave, when she was killed in a hit and run, but since then police arrested the driver and two of the passengers.
