WAUKESHA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A family is asking for help sending a woman home after she was killed crossing a highway in Pewaukee Monday night near I-94 and Wisconsin 164.

Pewaukee police say 29-year-old Patricia Casimiro Toledo of Waukesha was the woman killed, now her family is asking for help burying her.

The state Department of Transportation has released new video of the incident, showing when she was hit. In the video, you can barely see her walking up the right shoulder. After a car goes by, she starts to run across and is caught in the headlights of another car.

Pewaukee police, the Waukesha County Sheriff's Office and state troopers responded to the incident at around 8 p.m. Monday night.

An empty car that fell down an embankment next to I-94 was found not far away.

Police say they think Toledo got out of her car and was trying to cross the interstate for some unknown reason.

On a GoFundMe her family made in Spanish, it asks for funds to bury her in Cuernavaca, Mexico.
