SOUTH MONTGOMERY COUNTY- A 46-year-old Port Bolivar woman was killed while walking on the southbound lane of Interstate 45 between Nursery Road and Rayford Road, according to radio dispatch.
DPS Trooper Chapman, who investigated the death, said the incident occurred around 1:15 a.m. when the woman tried to cross the freeway on foot.
After being struck down by the first vehicle, Chapman said she was possibly hit by “several” others.
As of this writing, it is unknown how the victim wound up walking across the interstate. Trooper Chapman said several abandoned vehicles in the area were checked, but none yielded any helpful information.
The woman was pronounced dead on the scene. Her identity has not been released as of 7 a.m., as DPS officials were experiencing difficulty in locating her next of kin.
The deceased woman was identified as 46-year-old Wendy Schoellhorn.
Public Data shows her residence was in Port Bolivar, but she had connections to Montgomery County, having been married twice in that jurisdiction.
