A 49-year-old woman died when she was knocked over by a bakkie on the N1 highway in Johannesburg on Wednesday, paramedics said.

The woman was trying to cross the highway when she was hit by a Toyota Hilux just before the Maraisburg road offramp, ER24 spokeswoman Vanessa Jackson said.

“Paramedics who were travelling on the highway came across the woman lying in the road,” said Jackson.

She had suffered extensive head injuries and died on the scene. The driver of the bakkie was not injured.

Police were investigating.
