A Boynton Beach woman trying to be a good Samaritan died when a vehicle struck her on I-95 in Brevard County Sunday night, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

25-year-old Marcasia Crenshaw pulled over to help the driver of a vehicle which became disabled from a previous crash and was stopped in the inside travel lane near mile marker 221, FHP said.

As a pickup truck which was also heading south approached the scene, the driver began to aggressively put on the brakes and then swerved left to avoid a collision, traffic investigators said.

The pickup struck Crenshaw as she ran toward the grass median, the traffic report said.

The crash remains under investigation.
