Coroner identifies young woman who was struck by pickup as she crossed Eagle Road

The 24-year-old Boise woman who died from injuries after she was struck by a pickup truck early Saturday morning on Eagle Road was identified by the Ada County coroner Monday.

Madeline “Maddie” Duskey was pronounced dead at Saint Alphonsus hospital in Eagle. Her cause of death was blunt force trauma.

A YouCaring account has been set up to help Duskey’s family cover the cost of her funeral and burial. She is survived by two young children.

Witnesses summoned paramedics at about 12:19 a.m. Saturday to Eagle Road at Riverside Drive.

Ada County sheriff’s officials said Duskey was walking in or near the signalized, lighted crosswalk at the intersection when the collision occurred.

The pickup was traveling north on Eagle Road, and it struck Duskey as she walked in or near the crosswalk of the left northbound lane of Eagle Road. She was wearing dark clothing, the sheriff’s office said.

Investigators did not immediately know if she activated the crosswalk light, or if the traffic light was red/green when the truck passed through the intersection.

A passerby stopped to render aid to Duskey until paramedics arrived.

The 42-year-old Eagle man who was at the wheel of the pickup stayed at the scene until police arrived. Investigators are awaiting the results of toxicology and evidence tests.

Funeral arrangements are being handled by Summers Funeral Homes, Boise Chapel.
