Police identify pedestrian killed in accident

Police have identified a woman who died after being struck by a car Monday as she crossed the street near the intersection of Statesville Boulevard and Lash Drive.
Police said Kimberly Regina Allen, 42, had left a convenience store and was walking across Statesville Boulevard to her residence at Lakewood Apartments when struck by a white station wagon.
Allen was described as being in critical condition at the scene of the accident. Shortly after the accident, Salisbury police officer Sgt. B.J. Smith said the woman was pronounced dead after arriving at Novant Health Rowan Medical Center.
Medical personnel had arranged for a helicopter to airlift Allen to another hospital, but Salisbury police spokeswoman Capt. Shelia Lingle said the helicopter never transported Allen to another facility.
The woman sustained significant head trauma and was bleeding heavily at the time of the accident.
Lingle said the car, which was heading west on Statesville Boulevard, had a green light when the accident occurred.
Witnesses at the scene said they heard a loud sound at the time of the impact. Witnesses said the impact threw Allen into the air before she landed on Statesville Boulevard.
The station wagon sustained a shattered windshield. The hood of the vehicle on the driver’s side was also damaged from the impact.
