    A woman who was hit by an Uber driver who was bringing people to Bradley Airport on Sunday night has died.

    Police said they responded to the area of 77 Ella Grasso Turnpike in Windsor Locks around 7:50 p.m. on Sunday and found Chantel Lynch, 68, of Windsor Locks, found unresponsive in the road.

    She was transported to St. Francis Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

    There are some gas stations, fast food restaurants and hotels nearby, but no crosswalks, and police believe Lynch was crossing the street when she was hit.

    The Uber driver stayed at the scene and was brought to Manchester Memorial Hospital to be treated for chest pains.  No information is available in his condition.

    The accident reconstruction team is investigating.
