MISSION VALLEY: Woman fatally struck by car on I-8
(CNS) – A 45-year-old San Diego woman was fatally struck by a
car on Interstate 8 in the Mission Valley area early Friday, the California
Highway Patrol reported.
The accident on westbound I-8 east of Taylor Street was reported at 4:43
a.m., according to California Highway Patrol Officer Tommy Doerr. The woman
stepped into traffic lanes from the right shoulder and was struck by a 2008
Volkswagen Jetta, he said in a statement.
The driver, a 20-year-old San Diego woman, remained at the scene to be
questioned, Doerr said.
“DUI was not a factor for the driver of the Volkswagen,” Doerr said.
“The sobriety of the pedestrian has not been determined.”
