Woman hit, killed by vehicle while walking in Carrick roadway

PITTSBURGH — A woman has died after being hit by a vehicle in a Pittsburgh neighborhood Saturday morning.

Pittsburgh police say the collision happened just before 6 a.m. on the 1000 block of Brownsville Road in Carrick.

First responders found a woman in the roadway with “significant head injuries.” She was taken to a hospital in critical condition, where she later died.

The Office of the Allegheny County Medical Examiner identified the woman as Jacqueline Quinten, 44, of Mt. Oliver.

The 73-year-old male driver told police he was heading northbound on Brownsville Road and didn’t initially see Quinten, who police say was wearing black leggings and a black hoodie at the time of the incident. He called 911 after the crash, stayed at the scene and cooperated with police.

Police say the investigation so far indicates Quinten was walking in the street. The investigation is ongoing.
