Actress and dancer Zina Feeley, 66, died on Sunday morning when she stopped to help an injured animal on the side of the road and was struck by a car.
The accident occurred just after midnight in the 600 block of Forest Lawn Drive in Griffith Park.
Feeley, who went by her maiden name Zina Bethune, was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to authorities, Feeley was traveling west on Forest Lawn Drive when she pulled over to help an injured possum. She was then struck by another eastbound car. Her body was thrown into the westbound lanes where she was hit again.
The second car dragged her for more than 600 feet.
The driver of the second car stayed at the scene and cooperated with the investigation. The first car is being described as a white sedan by witnesses.
Feeley was a ballet dancer with the New York City Ballet and an actress on multiple daytime soap operas such as “The Guiding Light.”
She also starred alongside Harvey Keitel in Martin Scorsese’s “Who’s That Knocking at My Door?”
She also founded Dance Outreach, a program for disabled children to learn the art of dance and movement.
