An official police report said the woman appeared to have been walking on the motorway when she was struck around 9:25pm by a vehicle moving northbound near a Dromolaxia exit.

It was not immediately clear whether the woman had been walking on the side of the road facing oncoming traffic.

The woman was described as approximately 60 years old, with dark hair. At the time of the incident, she was wearing black trousers, a white blouse with a floral print, and red sneakers.
