According to WTVF-TV, a woman was killed in a Lebanon pedestrian accident on November 14.
Lebanon Police told WTVF that the body of 59-year-old Cindy Ballington was found in the roadway on Carthage Highway around 8 p.m., after a vehicle struck her. WTVF reported that the driver of a vehicle that fled the scene of the crash, 33-year-old Pamela Delay, left the accident, telling authorities that she thought she struck a mailbox.
When she went home following the accident, Delay allegedly called the police to let them know about the crash, which she still did not think involved another person. Police went to the scene of the crash and discovered the body of Ballington, who they believe walked into the roadway.
An investigation into the crash is pending, although police told WTVF last week that charges are not expected to be filed against Delay.
