A 37-year-old woman was killed Wednesday night after she was hit by a tractor-trailer in Manchester Township.

The York County Coroner's Office was dispatched to an area of eastbound Arsenal Road (Route 30) near the Interstate 83 interchange just after 9 p.m.

The woman reportedly was walking with a friend in that area when she fell and injured herself, according a coroner's office report. Before the woman was able to get up, she was hit by the tractor-trailer as it exited off the interstate. The tractor-trailer driver did not stop at the scene after hitting the woman, the report said.

Attempts by EMS workers to revive the woman were unsuccessful, and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Pennsylvania State Police agreed to make changes or consider policy revisions based on a state oversight committee’s recommendations, but they did not give up the ability to investigate their own.

The Pennsylvania State Police are investigating the incident, and anyone with information is asked to call 717-428-1011.

An autopsy will be scheduled.
