Pedestrian Killed by Hit and Run Driver


Calcasieu Parish, La. – A local woman is dead after she was struck by a hit and run driver on Thursday, May 18, 2017, at 9 p.m. The incident happened on US Highway 90 near Manchester Road, about 3 1/2 miles east of Lake Charles, said Louisiana State Police (LSP) Troop D.

Troop D has investigated 10 fatal crashes resulting in 13 deaths in 2017.

After LSP responded to the incident, the initial investigation revealed: “58-year-old Elizabeth M. Pete of Lake Charles was retrieving mail from a mailbox and was walking across US 90 when she was struck by an unknown vehicle traveling east.” The Calcasieu Parish Coroner’s Office pronounced Pete dead at the scene.

According to LSP, the suspect may be driving a 2009-2012 Ford F-250 with damage. The driver reportedly failed to stop and continued east on US 90 toward Iowa, La. If you have information regarding the crash call Louisiana State Police Troop D at 337.491.2511.
A routine toxicology sample has been taken from Pete, and as they await an analysis the tragic incident remains under investigation.
