OSCEOLA — An Elkhart woman died Sunday afternoon after being hit by a car outside an Osceola bar the night before.

According to WSBT.com, Cynthia Cataldo, 50, was walking across the street toward Mr. G’s Bar around 11:30 p.m. Saturday when she quickly turned back in the direction she was coming from.
