PHOENIX — A woman was killed in a vehicle-pedestrian collision on a Phoenix street Monday morning, authorities said.

Michelle Yazzie, 47, was pronounced dead at the scene near 19th Avenue and Bethany Home Road just after 5 a.m., the Phoenix Police Department said.

Yazzie apparently was trying to cross 19th Avenue outside the crosswalk when she was hit by a southbound vehicle, police said.

The driver showed no signs of impairment, but speed may have been a factor, police said.

No other details were made available. The investigation is ongoing.

We want to hear from you.
