CASTAIC, CA (May 11, 2022) – Early Tuesday morning, a 30-year-old woman died in a pedestrian crash on Interstate 5 and Lake Hughes Road.
The incident happened at about 2:15 a.m. on Interstate 5 and Lake Hughes Road.
“A white International Navistar was traveling northbound on I-5 Golden State Freeway, north of Lake Hughes Road at approximately 55 mph. When a female pedestrian ran across traffic lanes and was struck,” a CHP report said.
The big rig hit the pedestrian within traffic lanes. As a result, the victim was thrown several feet and succumbed to her injuries at the scene.
