GULF SHORES, Ala. (AP) Police say a hit-and-run crash has claimed the life of an Oklahoma State University sophomore visiting Alabama's Gulf Coast on a spring break trip.
Gulf Shores police say 19-year-old Kasey Waychoff died early Friday morning after being struck by a vehicle while walking in a bicycle lane. Police tell Al.com (http://bit.ly/1fMRGbp) that the crash happened around 1:45 a.m. Friday, as Waychoff walked with some of her sorority sisters along West Beach Boulevard.
A Baldwin County sheriff's deputy later stopped a motorist based on a description of the vehicle involved in the hit and run. Police said no charges were immediately filed in connection with Waychoff's death, and they were continuing to investigate the crash.
Oklahoma State said in a statement that Waychoff was a sophomore from Flower Mound, Texas.
