The fatal crash happened around 3 a.m. near Meadow Creek Drive, east of Interstate 4.

The FHP said a 52-year-old Kissimmee man was driving a 2016 Ford van south on S.R. 535 when he struck the woman.

The woman was in a crosswalk, but it's unclear who had the right of way, troopers said.

Witnesses said they tried to help the woman.

"We (weren't) sure if she was alive," a witness said. "She took two breaths and we did CPR. We did our best to help her."

The woman was airlifted to Osceola Regional Medical Center, where she died, officials said. Troopers later identified the victim as Eloise Le Brun, 24, of Orlando.

The driver was not hurt, the FHP said.

Alcohol did not play a role in the crash, according to troopers.
