A Blountsville woman died Sunday night after being struck by a car.

Jimmie Louise Bullard, 54, was hit as she walked in the roadway of U.S. 231, about 10 miles north of Blountsville.

A spokesman for the Alabama State Troopers said Bullard was struck a little after 6 o’clock by a 2002 Saturn. She was taken to a Huntsville hospital but did not survive.

The driver of the Saturn stayed at the accident site and the incident remains under investigation.
