Woman hit by car after sitting down on I-40 exit ramp

Early Sunday morning, Amarillo police officers were dispatched to the 4200 block of West IH-40 on a motor vehicle striking a pedestrian.

 A 2015 Dodge Journey driven by Dexter Beach, 29, was exiting I-40 in the 4200 block exit ramp. Rebecca Juarez, 26, was sitting in the roadway. Beach was unable to stop in time and struck Juarez.

Juarez was taken to a local area hospital with life threatening injuries. Beach was uninjured.

Alcohol is a possible factor as to why Juarez was sitting in on the exit ramp. The incident is being investigated by the Traffic Investigation Squad of the Amarillo Police Department.
