A woman died after being struck by a vehicle on Highway 3 early Saturday morning.

Coaldale RCMP responded to a serious vehicle collision that took place on Highway 3 early Saturday morning between Range Road 224 and Township road 92.

Upon arrival, police discovered the victim, a 31-year-old woman who lived in Stand Off, Alta., was dead.

Investigators remained on scene for several hours, before clearing the scene and reopening the road.

Police said preliminary investigation suggests impairment wasn't a factor.

RCMP expressed condolences to the family and friends of the deceased.

Meanwhile, Lethbridge police issued an update to a release Saturday saying they have reopened the westbound lanes of Highway 3 between Lethbridge and Coalhurst, as well as the northbound lanes along Westside Drive at the city limits, after closing them for several hours due to a vehicle collision.
