Pedestrian struck, killed by teen driver in Newport
NEWPORT — A Newport woman out for a walk with friends was struck and killed by a car driven by a teen on Sunday.
Newport police say they received multiple calls through 911 at about 12:45 p.m. Sunday, reporting that a pedestrian had been hit by a car on Route 10, also known locally as North Main Street.
Police said that Stephanie Burch, 30, of Newport was struck from behind by a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer driven by Kanesha Campbell, 17, of Croydon. Burch suffered fatal injuries as a result, and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police said Burch was walking with two friends in the breakdown lane in a southerly direction with the flow of traffic at the time she was hit. Police said Campbell was also heading south on Route 10.
North Main Street was closed for about two hours while the collision was investigated. Police said last night they were unsure why the Trailblazer left the travel lane and went into the breakdown lane, and that their investigation continues.
