A fatal traffic accident involving a pedestrian and an automobile occurred shortly before 7 p.m. Saturday night near the intersection of Farm-to-Market Road 439 and Quarry Road near Nolanville, according to state troopers.

Sgt. David Roberts with the Texas Department of Public Safety confirmed the accident, and a trooper on scene said the pedestrian was killed. 

State troopers identified the pedestrian as Mary Hutton, 32, of Shamrock, a small town in the Texas panhandle. Hutton was pronounced dead at the scene.

"A 2016 Dodge passenger car was traveling east bound. A pedestrian walked into the path of the vehicle and was struck," according to an email from Roberts. The driver and passenger in the Dodge were not injured.

A heavy police presence was reported at the scene, which is near The Pit Stop Bar and Grill between Nolanville and Harker Heights.

"A heavy police presence was reported at the scene, which is near The Pit Stop Bar and Grill"
What a coincidence! It just so happened there was a fund raiser at the Pit Stop sponsored by a local motorcycle club.
Kinda makes you wonder what constitutes a "heavy police presence" and why it was assembled on an otherwise desolate stretch of roadway???
