A 28-year-old Bronx woman died after she was struck by a car while walking along the rain-swept Major Deegan Expressway in Bronx early Tuesday, officials said

A 2008 Honda Accord slammed into the woman, identified as Victoria Hamann, as she walked along the Queens-bound side of the highway near the W. 230th Street exit in Kingsbridge at about 4:50 a.m., officials said.

Paramedics rushed her to New York-Presbyterian Hospital’s Allen Pavilion, where she died.

The 30-year-old man driving the Honda was not harmed and remained on the scene, officials said.

No charges were expected to be filed.

It was not immediately clear why Hamann was walking on the highway, officials said.
