MAGNOLIA, Del - A female pedestrian is dead after reportedly, being hit by a car on South State Street in Magnolia, Delaware yesterday afternoon.

Lytle of Magnolia, was walking in a westbound direction, attempting to cross the southbound lane of South State Street into the path of the Honda Accord and was struck by the front of the vehicle.

Lytle was taken to the Kent General Hospital where she was pronounced dead.  Dawud Abdul Mumin was properly restrained and was not injured.

The roadway was closed for approximately 3 hours while the crash was investigated.  Troopers continue to investigate this crash.
