A woman is struck and killed while crossing San Marcos Street

A female pedestrian was struck and killed as she crossed the street close to 1700 San Elijo Road in San Marcos, California on Tuesday, Oct. 3.

Officers with the San Diego County Sheriff's Department first responded to accident scene just after 4:45 p.m., that day. They then spoke with with the motorist believed to have caused the crash as well as witnesses at the scene.

In doing so, they learned that the motorist had been in the process of turning out of an area business into an adjacent lane when the now-deceased pedestrian was struck. It appears that the motorist may have failed to look into the turn before committing to it. Had he or she done so, it's possible that the pedestrian wouldn't have been struck.

By the time paramedics arrived at the crash scene, the woman was barely holding on to life. They transported her to an area hospital. She soon expired there. The motorist, who's believed to have struck the woman, appears to have been physically unharmed in the crash.

The motorist remained at the scene following the crash. He was reportedly cooperative with the police investigation into it.

It's unclear if he'll face any criminal charges for his role in causing the woman's death. A spokesperson for the San Diego County Sheriff's Department has yet to exclude either drugs or alcohol from playing a role in causing the crash.

If your loved one has been struck by a motorist and has either suffered significant injuries or died as a result, then a Vista, California, pedestrian accident attorney can advise you of the legal options available to you.
