Woman killed at intersection where she lost her leg years earlier

HANCOCK COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - A Hancock County woman died Wednesday night after authorities say she was hit by a pick-up truck.

Chief Deputy Don Bass with the Hancock County Sheriff's Department said Barbara Sullivan, 55, was attempting to walk across Lakeshore Road not far from her home when she was struck by a passing vehicle. The accident happened around 10pm Wednesday night near Corkern Lane.

Authorities say Sullivan lost one of her legs in an accident several years ago at that same location.

Wednesday night's accident is still being investigated, but so far no charges have been filed against the driver of the pick-up.
