BAYCHESTER - Police say a female pedestrian was killed in Baychester after being hit by a burgundy Toyota Camry.

A Good Samaritan who tried to aid the woman - who police say was in her 20s - says he did what he could to save her.

"I took her pulse and moved her bag away from her face because it was becoming a distraction from her breathing," he says.

The distraught driver of the Toyota was taken to the hospital for observation.
