A woman is dead after authorities said she was struck by a vehicle at the start of an off-ramp in Peoria.

Athena Schuck, 38, was identified as the woman killed in a collision Saturday morning near Loop 101 and Thunderbird Road.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said the collision occurred along northbound Loop 101 at the start of the Thunderbird Road off-ramp.

DPS said impairment does not appear to be a factor and no citations were issued.

The collision remains under investigation.

DPS said Ms. Schuck is from Glendale, but has a Youngtown address associated with her.

A friend told Daily Independent that Ms. Schuck worked at the Fry’s in Sun City West and is survived by two children.
