DEARBORN COUNTY, Ind. (WXIX) - The woman that was killed after she was hit by a truck as she cut grass Friday has been identified, according to Dearborn County Sheriff Shane McHenry.

The woman was using a push mower, the sheriff’s office said.

At this time, Sheriff McHenry said it is still unclear what caused the driver to leave the road.

Cash is cooperating with the investigation.
