A 55-year-old woman who was fatally struck by a pickup truck in Rancho Penasquitos was crossing a busy street at an intersection without a marked crosswalk, police said Friday.
The pedestrian, whose name was not immediately available, was walking west across Carmel Mountain Road at Gerana Street when she was hit by a southbound white Toyota truck around 7:30 p.m. Thursday, San Diego Police Officer Ben Newton said.
The 72-year-old man behind the wheel of the pickup truck stopped at the scene after the accident, Newton said.
