PHOENIX – A woman has died after she was struck by a semi-truck and another vehicle while walking in a Phoenix suburb early Wednesday.

Chandler Police said in an email that 38-year-old Maria Armendariz was struck by a white 2005 Peterbilt semi-truck as it pulled out of a private driveway near Ray Road and Hamilton Street before being hit by a red 1998 Ford Expedition.

Armendariz was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.

The operator of the Peterbilt left the scene and when contacted, told investigators he was unaware of the collision. The driver of the Expedition remained on the scene.

No arrests have been made and no citations have been issued. Additionally, there is no indication of impairment from any involved party, police said.

Last month, two pedestrians and a bicyclist were killed on Phoenix streets within days of each other.

A woman crossing a street in southeast Phoenix was hit by a motorcycle rider and was pronounced dead at the scene near 48th Street and Chandler Boulevard.

In the West Valley, a 14-year-old boy on his way to school was hit and killed in Peoria, the same morning a bus on the border of El Mirage and Surprise hit a man riding a bike.

The bicyclist was pronounced dead at the intersection of U.S. 60 and Greenway Road.
