LANCASTER, N.Y. — A woman that was hit and killed on the Thruway last night.

State Police say a woman was hit by a tractor-trailer around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday while walking in the eastbound lanes of the 90 between Exit 49 and Exit 48A.

Troopers believe the woman may have been involved in an earlier accident in that area a few hours earlier, but when they arrived on scene, they couldn't locate her. They think she might have wandered onto a side street.

That section of the Thruway was closed and reopened around 1 a.m. Wednesday.

The victim's name has not yet been released, and no charges have been filed. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
