MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Pa. -

The woman struck and killed Monday while jogging in Limerick was identified by investigators as 40-year-old Merinda Thompson, according to the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office.

Thompson died just before 3 p.m. while she was jogging on N. Lewis Road in the Royersford section of Limerick Township when a car crossed into the southbound lane and struck her, police said.

Members of the police department and the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office are now conducting a joint investigation into her death.

Police say the 18-year-old driver was taken to Paoli Hospital for what were described as non-life threatening injuries.

According to investigators, a blood sample from the driver was obtained for testing. Investigators have also taken the man's cell phone.

An autopsy on Thompson's body was scheduled for Tuesday.
