Police have identified a woman who died after a pedestrian accident in East Haven on Sunday morning.

Officers were called to Frontage Road in front of Carmax after getting a report of a body in the roadway.

When police arrived, they said they found a woman, later identified as 38-year-old Amber Neal, of Clinton, suffering from serious injuries in the middle of the road.

Firefighters arrived and Neal at the scene before rushing her to Yale New Haven Hospital. Neal was later pronounced dead, authorities added.
