A deadly crash closed the I-10 eastbound exit at Estrella Parkway for several hours Wednesday morning.

According to DPS, a truck hit and killed a woman walking on the off-ramp.

The woman was pulled over in her vehicle by Goodyear police and her car was in the process of being impounded. As the Goodyear officer was processing the paperwork, the woman walked away.

DPS said the Goodyear officer yelled at the woman to come back so he could giver her a ride off the freeway before she was hit by a truck.

The driver of the truck will not be charged at this time. He was not impaired and speed was not a factor.

It appears the woman was walking very close to the edge of the off-ramp.

The off-ramp was closed for about four hours, before it reopened around 11:00 a.m.
