Pedestrian dies after being struck by vehicle

HALEYVILLE  - A Haleyville woman has died from injuries suffered in a  vehicle versus pedestrian hit-and-run incident Thursday night, Oct. 14, which led to multiple agencies converging on the scene for several hours.
Tamber Ann Riddle, 44,  was pronounced dead at 10:25 p.m. by Winston County Deputy Coroner Don Dimond, who was called at 9:30 p.m. to  Lakeland Community Hospital in Haleyville, Dimond said.
“When I was called, this case was described to me by authorities as a motor vehicle versus pedestrian,” Dimond pointed out.
After the pronunciation, Riddle’s body was transported to the Alabama Department of Forensic Science in Huntsville for  further investigation, Dimond said.
 “They are doing an investigation to determine the cause and manner of death,” he said.
The vehicle that reportedly struck Riddle had left the scene of the incident, and no details on the vehicle’s description have been released, authorities said.
Investigation into what is officially being termed a ‘pedestrian-involved accident’ is being handled by troopers with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency with assistance from the 25th Judicial Circuit District Attorney’s Office.
Troopers reported in a press release issued Monday, Oct. 18, that Riddle was, “struck in the roadway by an unknown vehicle.”
The crash occurred on Highway 195 about five miles south of Haleyville, troopers reported.
