A 28-year-old Alabama woman was killed early Wednesday morning when she was struck by a vehicle on I-185 in Columbus. 

Jaleesa Moore was traveling southbound on I-185 just past the Manchester Expressway exit when her vehicle hit the concrete median, Coroner Buddy Bryan said. She got out of her vehicle and was stuck by another vehicle and killed, Bryan said.
