Woman Killed in Waveland

The woman hit and killed by a vehicle in Waveland last night has been identified as 51-year-old Becky Paulk of Waveland.
Waveland Police Department tells News 25 she was lying in the middle of the road when the vehicle hit her. The incident happened around 10 p.m. near the intersection of Donlard Street and Waveland Avenue. Paulk was in dark clothing, making it hard for oncoming traffic to see her.
Waveland Police Department tells News 25 Paulk lived in a house near the scene. Chief David Allen said, “A vehicle saw her, slowed down to try to see what was wrong with her, as they were stopped to try to see what was up, another car came through which ended up striking her and unfortunately killing her. That driver was not impaired in any way, shape, or form. He stopped and rendered aid. At this point, we’re looking at it as basically a tragic accident.”
Chief Allen says the accident is still under investigation.
