WESTMINSTER, Colo. — Westminster police are investigating after a woman was struck by a RTD bus while crossing the eastbound lanes of US Highway 36.

Around 2:16 a.m. Monday, the Westminster Police Department received a call about a fatal vehicle crash on US 36 involving a RTD bus and a pedestrian.

When police arrived at the scene — the eastbound lanes of US 36 between Sheridan Boulevard and Federal Boulevard — they learned from initial reports that a woman had been walking across the eastbound lanes of US 36 when she was struck by the RTD bus.

The driver of the bus immediately pulled over and call 911, police said. As this was happening, another vehicle may have hit the woman.

The woman died, police said.

Police are investigating this incident and have asked anybody with information to call the Westminster Police Department at 303-658-4360.

The eastbound lanes of US 36 reopened around 7:15 a.m.
