Authorities have identified a woman who was fatally struck by a car on a collapsed section of a major northern Arizona highway during this week's storm.

The Arizona Department of Public Safety said Friday the victim of the collision was 26-year-old Amelie Fortune, of France.
    
Information about her hometown was not immediately available.
    
Troopers were called late Wednesday night to a stretch of U.S. 89 near Cameron.
    
They say Fortune had just crossed a section in her car as it started to give way. She was inspecting the damage when another driver lost control while crossing the collapsed area.
    
Fortune was hit and died at the scene. Her two passengers were treated and released at a hospital.
    
Authorities believe the road sustained major damage from rain brought by the remnants of a tropical storm.
