DES MOINES, Iowa — A woman was killed Monday morning after a vehicle struck her while she crossed a Des Moines street, according to authorities.

Des Moines police said the crash happened on the city's south side. Margit Browman, 49, of Des Moines, was crossing an intersection shortly before 6 a.m. when she was hit by a car. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
