Police are investigating an incident that killed a 55-year-old York City woman Monday evening in West Manchester Township.

A vehicle struck a pedestrian about 7 p.m. in the 300 block of South Richland Avenue, according to a West Manchester Township Police news release.

The York County Coroner's Office pronounced Wahnell Venable dead at 7:44 p.m. at WellSpan York Hospital. 

Venable suffered blunt-force trauma, which resulted in her death, according to the York County Coroner's Office. 

Venable, of the 800 block of West College Avenue, was reportedly standing in the roadway when she was struck by a passing motorist driving south on South Richland Avenue, according to officials. 

"The pedestrian was reportedly wearing dark clothes at the time and visualization was difficult due to poor lighting in the area," according to a news release from the coroner's office. "The operator of the vehicle is reportedly cooperating with law enforcement."
