(KPRC)  A Texas woman is dead after she was hit and killed on the side of the road while helping a friend search for lost keys.

Investigators said 54-year-old Cheryl Ann Jefferson, with her friend in the passenger seat, was driving when the passenger accidentally threw some keys, along with some trash, out of the window.

Police said as she was looking for her friend's keys, a man driving a grey Hyundai came from behind and hit Jefferson.

Investigators said the man claimed he did not see Jefferson at all, and did not even realize that her car was stopped.
