The incident happened Thursday morning near Tripp and University. Department of Public Safety Troopers say Sherry Nelson was walking on Tripp when a person driving a vehicle hit her. However, it appears that Nelson may have been lying on the road, or kneeling down, because the driver never saw her. The damage on the vehicle was only to the underside.
Shortly after the first hit, a West Odessa Volunteer Fire Department truck was dispatched to a grass fire. The truck turned the corner, and ran over the body. Troopers say there is no way the fire truck could have seen her.
Now an autopsy has been ordered to see is something happened to Nelson before she was hit.
