ST. CLOUD, Minn. -- Police say that a 43-year-old woman from California was struck and killed by a semi truck in St. Cloud Monday evening.

The incident happened just after 6 p.m. in a parking lot on the 4100 block of Roosevelt Road. Police say that the victim was walking through the lot when she was struck by a slow-moving semi.

Police say she was actually a passenger in a different semi truck and had been walking through the parking lot to use the facilities in the business.

The driver of the other semi was reportedly unaware he had struck anyone for a number of seconds, police reported.

Investigators say they don't believe drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.

The victim was not identified by name.
