About an hour later the sheriff’s office received a call of someone possibly being hit by a vehicle near the airport. Rasmussen says the 49 year old woman was hit along the south shoulder of the roadway. Vehicle parts were found in the area, but it is not clear yet if they are from the striking vehicle or not. The state patrol was called in to complete an accident reconstruction. The incident remains under investigation.
