EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Police in East Providence are investigating the death of a woman who was found in the driveway of a home.

Officers were called to the residence around 4 a.m. Saturday for a report of a person who was struck by a car. Police say they found the woman and took her to Rhode Island Hospital where she later died.

Police tell WPRI-TV they initially believed there had been a hit-and-run, but that now appears to be inconsistent with their investigation.

Police say they haven’t ruled out that she was hit by a car.

The woman wasn’t immediately identified.
