Pedestrian killed trying to cross Manhattan Blvd.



A woman is dead after she was hit by a car on the Westbank.

It happened around 5:45am in Harvey, in the 1100-block of Manhattan Boulevard.

The Jefferson Parish Sheriff's office says 56-year-old Desiree Felton, of Harvey, was trying to walk across Manhattan when she crossed paths with a GMC pickup truck driven by a 54-year-old man from Zachary.  Sheriff's officials say the driver told them he did not see the woman until it was too late to stop.

Felton was pronounced dead on the scene.  The sheriff's office says they did not cite the driver, but will consult with the Jefferson Parish District Attorney's office.
