Woman Killed in Mason County While Walking on U.S. 10

Deputies say a woman is dead in Mason County after being hit by a car early Saturday morning.

The sheriff’s office says they were called to Dennis Rd. in Amber Township just after 3:00 a.m.

They say a 25-year-old woman from Walkersville was walking east on U.S. 10 when she was hit and killed by a car going the same direction.

Deputies say the man driving the car was not hurt but his passenger had to be taken to the hospital for injuries.

They say they are unsure why the woman was walking in the road and toxicology tests are pending.

The sheriff’s office says it appears the driver was not under the influence of alcohol and speed was not a factor in the crash.
