February 2--  Imagine you're driving down the road in the early evening and all of a sudden you come up on a woman sitting on the centerline.

It happened Monday evening near Soperton and the woman was hit and killed by an oncoming car.

Treutlen County Sheriff Tommy Corbin says 41-year-old Ada Louise Daniels was sitting cross-legged in the middle of Crooked Run Road just north of the Soperton city limits.

The sheriff said Daniels had a Soperton address at 1141 Robby Avenue but was staying with her boyfriend who lived about a half mile from where the accident occurred.

According to the sheriff, the boyfriend's father told him his son and Daniels had gone fishing Monday afternoon and had been drinking.  Sheriff Corbin said he could smell alcohol on the woman and he's waiting on results of a blood test as part of the investigation.

The driver of the car, Tammy Walraven, was on the way home from work  about 6:30 Monday night.  She told Sheriff Corbin she had just swerved to miss a dog on the side of the road when the accident happened.
