A woman has died after being hit by a van this morning in Marion. The 58-year-old resident of Northgate Apartments was crossing the street on West Kem Road near Forest Avenue toward the Circle K just before 7:30am when she was struck by a minivan driven by 64-year-old Rebecca Foreman of Marion. The pedestrian was airlifted to a Fort Wayne hospital but died during surgery. Marion Police were notified of her death just before 11am. Captain Steve Scott cited the pedestrian was not clearly visible to the driver, and was crossing the street illegally.
He says Foreman will not face any citations or charges at this time, but the crash remains under investigation. The victim’s name has not yet been released pending notification of relatives.
