OKLAHOMA CITY – Police are trying to identify a woman who was killed after stepping into traffic along a busy roadway earlier this week.

On Monday, authorities rushed to the area of S.E. 66th St. and Shields after receiving a call about a car hitting a woman.

Investigators learned the woman stepped into traffic and was hit and killed.

After fingerprinting failed to identify the victim, authorities hoped a relative would come forward and report her missing.

However, they have not received any calls and are now turning to the public to help find out who she was.

The victim is described as a black woman in her 60s or 70s with gray hair.

She was 5’2″ tall and weighed 247 pounds.

She was wearing red slippers and red framed glasses at the time of the accident.

Officials believe that she lived in the vicinity of the crash.

Anyone with information on the victim’s identity is asked to call CrimeStoppers at (405) 235-7300.
