A 43-year-old woman was struck and killed by a passing Dallas police patrol car as she stepped into the street.

Police say Beverly Kirk was attempting to cross the road after an ambulance had just passed and apparently did not see the marked squad car traveling behind it at about 3 a.m. Sunday.

The ambulance had its lights and sirens on.

The patrol car did not.

Kirk died at the scene.

Police issued a statement saying the officer, who was not named, was responding to a disturbance call and not required to activate his lights and sirens for that kind of call.

An investigation is underway.

No additional information is available.
