Woman killed after car stalled on highway

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A woman was killed after her car broke down on the north Beltway 8 near JFK and Vickory.

Investigators said the incident happened early Saturday morning when a woman's Ford Fusion stalled in one of the eastbound lanes.

Her car was clipped by a Pathfinder on the right side.

Police said the woman and her passenger got out to inspect the damage and the woman was hit by another car.

The woman died at the scene, according to authorities.

The driver that hit her is not facing any charges because the woman's car was in a moving lane of traffic, officials said.
