WEST PALM BEACH, Florida — Authorities say a 24-year-old woman is dead after two vehicles hit her as she crossed a road near West Palm Beach.

The Palm Beach Post (http://bit.ly/1mXL7KG ) reports 24-year-old Shadai Collins was not in a crosswalk as she was crossing the street Wednesday night. A car hit her, knocking her into another lane where a pickup truck also hit her.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's deputies say first driver didn't see the pedestrian because of low lighting in the area.

Collins was taken to a hospital, where she later died.
