SPRINGFIELD, Mass.

— A woman was killed when she was struck by a car Sunday afternoon in Springfield in northeastern Massachusetts, police said.

Police said a car traveling east on Route 1 near Springfield Lane struck the woman and killed her.

Springfield Police Chief Michael McVey said the woman was not wearing a seat belt when she died.

She was driving west on Route 8, and the driver of the car pulled over and asked the woman to stop, McVesney said.

The driver refused, Mcvey said.

He said the driver got out of his car and hit the woman multiple times.

The woman was transported to a hospital, where she later died.

The incident was being investigated as a single incident, police spokesman Officer John Clements said.

The car was reported stolen from a nearby residence.

No arrests had been made, police told reporters.

In March, a woman in Springford was killed by a passing vehicle after she was hit by a bus.
