ISABELLA COUNTY, Mich. (WJRT) - A 76-year-old woman died Tuesday afternoon when a pickup truck with a possible drowsy driver went off the road and hit her.

Marcia David was walking back to her residence on Bamber Road near Pickard Road in Isabella County’s Union Township when the pickup truck hit her, according to the sheriff’s office. She was pronounced dead on the scene.

Investigators believe David may have been going to her mailbox.

The 23-year-old man from Mount Pleasant driving the 2014 GMC Sierra pickup truck told police that he may have fallen asleep behind the wheel, driven off the road and hit David. He was transported to an area hospital for an evaluation.

The Isabella County Sheriff’s Office did not announce any criminal charges or enforcement action against the driver on Wednesday.
