HARDIN COUNTY, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A Hardin County woman was killed after being struck several times while riding her bicycle near Dixie Boulevard.

Radcliff Police say the drivers who hit Beverly Jeter, 25, stopped to call for help. They were mortified after hitting her bicycle. Her mother, in South Carolina, is stunned by the loss.

"She loved her family, her brother and sisters. She was very vibrant," Kimberly Jeter, Beverly's mother said.

"Down to earth, great personality. Very sweet she talked to everybody," Michelle Moseley, a neighbor said.

Police say Jeter pulled out with her bicycle into southbound lanes near Radcliff Elementary School. She was hit by several cars.

It was dark on Saturday night. Jeter rode her bike around 9:00 wearing jeans and dark clothing. Officers say she cut into traffic on south Dixie Boulevard where drivers had the right of way.

"It's not like anybody left the scene. The drivers of the vehicles were very upset for this terrible tragedy to occur like this," Bryce Shumate with Radcliff Police said.

"This is terrible, my prayers go out to the whole entire family," Moseley said.

Jeter had moved to Elizabethtown a year ago and her mother says the avid basketball player was her shining star.

"She loved to play basketball. That was her heart. She was very caring and would give you the shirt off her back if she had it," Kimberly Jeter said.

This accident is under investigation.
