Preliminary information gathered at the scene revealed the pedestrian was crossing Avenue I, southbound from 28th Street East, at around 8:17 p.m., according to Sgt. Dave Jennings of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station.
“The roadway is poorly lit in that area and there is no crosswalk. The pedestrian appeared to pay no attention to obvious traffic,” Jennings stated in a press release.
The woman, whose name has not yet been released, was struck by a 2013 Hyundai Elantra traveling eastbound on Avenue I in the number two lane, according to Jennings.
She was transported to Antelope Valley Hospital Medical Center in Lancaster, where she succumbed to her injuries.
Speed, alcohol or drugs do not appear to have been a factor in the collision, Jennings stated.
