A 22-year-old Crowley woman leaving Cowboys Nightclub died early Friday after she was hit by a vehicle exiting the club’s parking lot, police said.

Kylie Pannell died en route to the hospital sometime after 2 a.m., Scott Police Chief Chad Leger said. The driver, 23-year-old Chase Franks, of Breaux Bridge, was booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center on one count each of vehicular homicide and OWI.

Franks told police Pannell ran in front of his vehicle as he was leaving the parking lot, and that he didn’t see her until she had been hit, Leger said.
