A woman struck by a pickup truck while crossing a street has died. Sharon Gerlach, 59, was in a crosswalk on Bellevue Avenue in front of the International Tennis Hall of Fame Thursday afternoon when she was hit. She died hours later at Rhode Island Hospital. Police said the truck was driven by Craig Madison, 64, of Exeter. He told police he did not see her. He was cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. Gerlach was the co-owner of a nearby jewelry store. Her death is the second fatal accident involving someone in a crosswalk in less than a week in Newport.
