A 43-year-old Lake Leelanau woman was struck and killed Thursday night while walking her dog on South Lake Shore Drive in Leland Township.

Michigan State Police troopers responded to the scene of the fatal accident on South Lake Shore Drive near East Lingaur Road at 7:22 pm. A preliminary investigation indicates the victim, Evelyn Ella Kellogg, was walking her dog northbound on the southbound shoulder of the road when she was struck by a northbound vehicle driven by 52-year-old Christen Kelly Landry of Lake Leelanau. Kellogg and her dog died at the scene.
