CALEXICO: Pedestrian Killed on Highway 98 (Birch Street)
The incident was reported at 11:00 a.m. after an unidentified woman who had just exited a commercial building was struck by a motorist as she walked along the north sidewalk.
The driver had apparently attempted to make a U-turn but may have been a bit careless in doing so, hitting the woman.
The victim was flown to a hospital in San Diego and did not survive her injuries as she was pronounced dead from her injuries shortly after her admittance.
Per the Imperial Valley Press, the involved motorist did remain at the scene. He was questioned by Calexico police officials but did not appear to have been under the influence.
We offer our warmest of thoughts, our prayers, and condolences to the family members of the woman as they search for peace and comfort.
