Another pedestrian died on New Year’s Eve when she was struck by two vehicles on I-25 near Thornton between 144 th Avenue and Highway 7. Initial reports are that the woman was in a ride-share vehicle when the driver ended the ride because she was getting ill. After the ride share left the woman, she was sideswiped by a pickup truck and then struck by a second vehicle.
