An apparently disoriented woman was struck and killed by a vehicle Sunday night as she walked down a 10 Freeway on-ramp in Santa Monica, local authorities said.
The incident occurred at 10:33 p.m. on the Cloverfield Boulevard on-ramp to the eastbound Santa Monica Freeway, according to the California Highway Patrol. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Santa Monica Police Department told the CHP the victim was seen stumbling in that area and appeared disoriented on the 2100 block of Delaware Avenue. She wandered away and walked down the on-ramp before she was hit by the vehicle, CHP said.
The female’s name and age were not released pending notification of her family. There was no report that the driver of the vehicle that hit the woman was detained.
A SigAlert was issued by CHP at 10:55 p.m. shutting down the area to the on-ramp. It was reopened at about 2 a.m.
