    Police say a Glenburn, Maine, woman crossing the street to get her mail has been struck and killed by a passing vehicle.

    The victim, Barbara Crossman, 66, was struck at about 4:30 p.m. Wednesday on Pushaw Road.

    Investigators think she died instantly.

    The car that struck her was driven by a Stephen Niles, 57, of Bradford, who was headed toward Bangor. Niles was not injured. Maine State Police Lt. Sean Hashey says weather and poor visibility may have been factors.

    Crossman was also wearing dark clotes at the time.

    The death remains under investigation and there was no word on charges.
