The woman killed on a feeder road in League City early Sunday morning was identified by police on Tuesday.

Michelle Toombs, 54, of Dickinson, was killed after being hit by multiple vehicles at about 2:40 a.m. on an Interstate 45 feeder road between state Highway 96 and FM 646, police said.

Toombs' death was ruled a suicide, said League City Police Department spokesman Matt Maggiolino. Police believe Toombs walked into or laid down on the road before she was struck, he said.

Before her death, Toombs had walked into a nearby emergency room, Maggiolino said. She left a short time after arriving, he said.

No one has been charged in Toombs' death, he said.
