MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Authorities have released the name of an 82-year-old woman who was struck and killed by a pickup truck.

The Dane County medical examiner’s office identifies the victim as Margaret Ring of Madison.

The Wisconsin State Journal (https://bit.ly/1YhO6lE ) reports Ring was struck Tuesday morning by a pickup leaving an underground parking garage on Madison’s west side. She died at the scene.

The 29-year-old driver stopped immediately and called 911. He consented to a voluntary blood draw, although there were no indications of alcohol or drug use.

A police spokesman says the driver did not see the woman. It’s unclear if she was in the driveway or in the road at the time of the accident.
