According to a crash report, the woman entered the direct path of a pickup truck — driven eastbound by a 26-year-old Orlando man — and was struck by the left front of the vehicle.

The impact propelled the woman into the inside westbound lane of Colonial Drive, in what troopers said was the direct path of a sedan driven by a 25-year-old Orlando man. The woman was struck a second time, troopers said, and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Both drivers involved remained on scene and were not injured in the crash, troopers said.

The fatal crash is still being investigated.
