TOWN OF PINE RIVER (WAOW) -- A woman died Wednesday night after she was hit by a car while crossing the street across from her home.

Her name was Leilla Frederick and police said the 86-year-old woman was just trying to get her mail when she was hit by a minivan.

The accident happened a little after 6 PM on State Road 64, west of Spile Dam Road in the town of Pine River. Police said Frederick was wearing dark clothing at the time, which may have been why the driver didn't see her.

The passenger in the minivan was hurt in the accident but police said his injuries are not life-threatening. Police said no charges will be made in this accident but they are still investigating the crash.

The speed limit on State Route 64 is 55 miles per hour.
