Authorities released the name Friday of a 42-year-old woman killed in an apparent hit-and-run on a freeway in Otay Mesa.
Angelica Borjas of San Diego lost control of the truck she was driving on eastbound state Route 905 near Britannia Boulevard shortly before 6 a.m. Thursday, sending it crashing into a center guardrail, according to the California Highway Patrol and county Medical Examiner’s Office.
Preliminary evidence indicated that Borjas then got out of the pickup and was walking along the roadway when another vehicle, possibly a big rig, hit her and did not stop, officials said.
Emergency crews found her lying mortally wounded in the far right-hand lane of the freeway. Medics pronounced her dead at the scene.
