A pedestrian who died after being struck by a car on East Washington Avenue on Saturday night walked into traffic and no charges are planned against the driver, Madison police said Tuesday.
Shortly before 9:45 p.m., Ashley Taylor, 37, was struck in the road by a car traveling outbound in the 3800 block of East Washington Avenue, police spokesperson Tyler Grigg said in a report on Monday.
Taylor, who died at the scene, walked into traffic near the intersection of East Washington and Mendota Street as outbound traffic had a green light, the Madison Police Department’s Traffic Investigation Unit determined, Grigg said in a report Tuesday.
Two witnesses told police they did not see the person in the road as the crash happened, Grigg said.
The driver remained at the scene and cooperated with police, stating they did not see Taylor, Grigg said.
