Officials tell WGME 13 that a pickup truck was turning onto East Avenue and by the time the driver noticed the woman in the roadway was unable to come to a stop before striking her.
At this time, the identity of the deceased is being withheld as investigators work to notify the victim's family.
Police tell WGME news that, at this time, they do not believe that speed, alcohol or drugs were factors in Wednesday afternoon's crash.
