Officers are investigating the death of a woman who was struck by at least two vehicles Friday morning as she crawled or walked across U.S. 60 in Tempe.

At about 4:45 a.m. the state Department of Public Safety got a call regarding a pedestrian struck on westbound U.S. 60, west of McClintock Road.

The closure of the freeway came as motorists were beginning their morning commutes, and traffic was backed up as far as Country Club Drive to the east. Motorists getting off the U.S. 60 congested side streets for hours.

The freeway re-opened about 11:40 a.m.

According to DPS officer Robert Bailey, the first vehicle that struck her was a white Toyota Sequoia, which braked hard to try to avoid the woman as she moved northbound across the freeway. The Sequoia then was hit by a grey Toyota Corolla. A third vehicle moved to avoid the first two, but it is possible that car also struck the woman.

The mystery, said Bailey, is whether the woman was injured prior to being hit, why she was making her way across the freeway, and who she is.

"We don't know why she was here," Bailey said. "She does not appear to be a transient."

The woman was declared dead on the scene. One of the drivers sustained minor injuries and was treated at the scene, Bailey said.

Bailey said the woman was in her 20s or 30s, but no other description was available.

"For us, this is a homicide investigation until we can prove otherwise," Bailey said.
