The York County Coroner's Office identified a 37-year-old woman who was struck and killed by tractor trailer on Wednesday.

Kristi Why was walking with a friend near the I-83 offramp along Arsenal Road in West Manchester Township when Why fell and injured herself, according to the coroner's report. She was struck by a tractor trailer exiting I-83 before she could get back up.

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 operator of the tractor trailer did not stop at the time. Pennsylvania State Police are seeking information about the incident. Anyone with information can call 717-428-1011.
