The crash occurred Thursday at 5:58 a.m. on the 6100 block of Route 340 (Lord Fairfax Highway), according to Virginia State Police.

A 2015 Ford Fusion was traveling north on Route 340, when a pedestrian ran east across the northbound travel lane. The Ford was unable to avoid striking the pedestrian.

Torres later succumbed to her injuries.

Torres was a passenger in a southbound vehicle when it stopped in a middle turn lane. Torres then exited the vehicle.

The crash remains under investigation. No charges have been placed.
