Troopers say that a dump truck, operated by a 57 year-old, was traveling northbound on I-275 near milepost 18 when a pedestrian walked into the path of the vehicle for unknown reason. 

As a result, the dump truck struck the 37 year-old female pedestrian, from St. Petersburg, who suffered fatal injuries at the scene of the crash.
