A Middlesboro woman died after being hit by a vehicle while walking along Nicholasville Road on Monday morning.
Jessamine County Coroner Michael Hughes said Amanda Renee Marcum, 33, was wearing dark clothing when she was hit about 5 a.m. on U.S. 27 near Ash Grove Road.
He said Monday morning that it was too early to tell whether she was in the road or in the median when she was hit, Hughes said.
Both northbound lanes and one southbound lane of the heavily traveled road were closed for several hours Monday morning while a police reconstruction unit worked, according to Lexington's traffic management center. Northbound traffic was rerouted to Catnip Hill Road.
