"Coming up this hill, you can’t see in the morning."

A woman struck and killed by a car in Brockton Wednesday morning was identified as 50-year-old Chafang Wu.

The crash took place in the area of Ash and West Chestnut streets according to a statement from Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz. A witness said a Toyota Prius struck a telephone pole and a pedestrian around 6:35 a.m. according to reporting by WCVB.

“I just think it was the glare from the sun. Coming up this hill, you can’t see in the morning, and I just think she veered off a little bit and ended up going through the pole,” said witness Mike Gomes.

No foul play is suspected according to the District Attorney.
