Missouri state troopers have identified the pedestrian who was struck and killed early Friday morning on I-70 in Cooper County.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol’s crash report says 29-year-old Belinda Hendricks of Moberly “was standing in the roadway” on I-70 at 5:30 on Friday morning. Hendricks was struck by a vehicle driven by a Sedalia man at I-70’s 94-mile marker.
Hendricks was pronounced dead at the scene by Cooper County coroner James Hurt.
The crash backed up traffic for a few miles on Friday on the heavily-traveled interstate.
