A Mt. Washington woman died early Monday when she ran in front of a minivan that hit her on the Parkway North, state police said.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office identified her as Heather Lynn Kuhn, 28. She was pronounced dead at 4:14 a.m. at the scene, according to the medical examiner's office.

State police said David Krull, 47, of Coraopolis was driving a Chevrolet Uplander north near mile marker 12 — north of the Camp Horne Road exit but before the merger of interstates 279 and 79 — in Franklin Park at about 3:55 a.m.

Kuhn ran from the right berm of the road “directly in front of” the Uplander in the right lane, state police said in a press release, and she was thrown 224 feet.

Krull could not be reached for comment. State police are investigating.
