A woman was killed on Interstate 70 this morning as she stopped to help at an accident scene. She has been identified as 28-year-old Christina G. Sterling-Soffel.

The Colorado State Patrol says Sterling-Soffel was crossing the interstate when she was hit by a pickup truck driven by 69-year-old Jack Vanhoose. Troopers say Sterling-Soffel was checking on the driver of a truck who had spun off the road and into the median.

The accident closed one lane of traffic in each direction for nearly three hours.

The investigation is ongoing. Troopers do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor.
