A pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle Friday night at the intersection of McHugh Drive and Road Runner Street in Helena. 

The 77-year-old Helena woman was hit by a 1999 Oldsmobile passenger vehicle just before 8 p.m., the Helena Police Department reported.

She was transported to St. Peter's Health, where she later died. Her name was not released Saturday. 

The Lewis and Clark County Coroner's office anticipated releasing the name sometime Sunday, pending notification of family.  

The woman and two other pedestrians were crossing McHugh Drive eastbound. 

The vehicle was driven by a 37-year-old Helena woman headed northbound on McHugh. No citations have been issued and the investigation is ongoing. 

The intersection was closed for about two hours during the initial investigation. 

Helena Police Assistant Chief Steve Hagen said Sunday that the investigation and a decision on whether citations will be issued will likely take some time.
