Woman hit and killed crossing Eagle Road identified

A Boise woman died early Saturday morning after she was hit by a pickup truck while crossing Eagle Road.

The Ada County Coroner's Office identified the victim Monday as  24-year-old  Madeline Duskey. She died from blunt force trauma, according to the coroner.

Ada County Sheriff's Office spokesman Patrick Orr said it appears that the woman was walking in or near the crosswalk on Eagle Rd. at Riverside Drive when she was struck. The driver of the pickup was headed north. It is unclear if the light on Eagle Rd. was green or red, or if Duskey had activated the crosswalk signal. The woman was wearing dark clothing, and her car was parked in a nearby parking lot, Orr said.

The crash occurred just after midnight. Witnesses called 911 at 12:19 a.m. to report what happened. A passerby stopped and attempted first aid. Paramedics took Duskey to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

The death was ruled an accident.

After the crash, the driver of the pickup, a 42-year-old Eagle man, remained at the scene and was interviewed by officers. His name has not been released.

The northbound lanes of Eagle Rd. were closed for several hours Saturday morning as investigators collected evidence.

As of Saturday evening, no charges have been filed. Ada Co. Sheriff's investigators continue to develop evidence, and are awaiting the results of toxicology and evidence tests.
