A pedestrian was killed when she walked in front of a semi on an Interstate 25 exit ramp Friday morning, according to the Colorado State Patrol.

Troopers said the crash happened around 3:40 a.m. on the ramp from northbound Interstate 25 into Monument. A 41-year-old woman from Colorado Springs was walking across the ramp and walked in front of a tractor-trailer. The semi driver was unable to stop in time, and hit the woman. 

Troopers said the woman died on the scene. Her name has not yet been released. 

The driver of the semi was not injured. 

Troopers are still trying to determine if the woman was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
