The name of a woman who died Friday night after being hit by a car on West Cervantes Street has been released.
The woman - Faith Shoemore, 39, of Pensacola – died in a local hospital after walking into the path of a car around 8 p.m. Friday on Cervantes Street just east of H Street, said Officer Brad Buddin.
Buddin said a 2012 Honda Civic driven by Linda Butler, 58, of Pensacola was eastbound on Cervantes Street in the outside lane when Shoemore walked in front of her car and was hit. Shoemore had been walking eastbound on the sidewalk when for an unknown reason she walked onto Cervantes Street and into the path of the car.
The incident remains under investigation. No charges have been filed.
