The incident reported indicated that the Getreu had been pushing a shopping cart across the road upon being struck by a 2014 Nissan Altima at 5:45 a.m.
Getreu tragically suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
It was confirmed that the driver of the involved vehicle identified as Roberto Mendoza, 40, did indeed pull over and was cooperative with authorities as it was determined he was not under the influence.
At this time, it remains unclear whether Getreu was inside a marked crosswalk prior to being hit as McHenry remained closed between Rumble Road and Kavanagh Avenue for several hours.
The staff members of Johnson Attorneys Group thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Ms. Sarah Getreu during such difficult times.
