TOWN OF YORKVILLE, Wis. (AP) - A woman who ran onto a road in Racine County to retrieve her dog has been struck by a semi and killed.

Sheriff’s officials say 43-year-old Amy Krenzke from the Sturtevant area ran onto Durand Avenue in the Town of Yorkville about 3 a.m. Tuesday when she was hit by the semi. Deputies began lifesaving measures until paramedics arrived. Krenzke was taken to Wheaton Franciscan hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

The sheriff’s office says the dog was found later in the day unharmed and was returned to the family.

The driver of the semi is cooperating with investigators.
