Eagle Police are investigating the fatal truck versus pedestrian crash.

A 24-year-old Boise woman died after she was hit by a pickup truck while crossing Eagle Road early Saturday morning. She has been identified as Madeline Duskey of Boise.

It appears Duskey was walking in or near the crosswalk area on Eagle Road at the Riverside Drive intersection when she was struck by the pickup, which was going north.

The crash occurred just after midnight. Officers interviewed the driver of the truck, a 42-year-old Eagle man, who remained at the scene until officers arrived.

Witnesses called 911 at 12:19 a.m. Saturday to report what happened. A passerby stopped at the scene and attempted first aid. Paramedics transported the woman to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead a short time later.

It is unclear which direction Duskey was walking when she was hit in the left northbound lane of Eagle Road. It is also unclear if the light on Eagle Road was green or red or if she activated the crosswalk signal.

She was wearing dark clothing at the time. Her car was parked nearby in a parking lot.

No charges have been filed as of Saturday evening. Ada County Sheriff’s investigators continue to develop evidence and are awaiting the results of toxicology and evidence tests.

The northbound lanes of Eagle Road were closed for several hours Saturday morning as investigators collected evidence.
