A homeless woman was killed in a traffic crash Friday morning while trying to cross the road on her bicycle, Baton Rouge Police spokesman Sgt. L'Jean McKneely Jr. said.

Brandy Zeringue, 32, was attempting to cross the street around 9:35 a.m. in the 1200 block of North Boulevard when she was struck by a 2005 Jeep Liberty.

She was taken to a local hospital and later died from her injuries.

The crash is still under investigation, McKneely said.
