LAMONT, Calif. (KGET) — A woman was struck and killed by a vehicle Monday night on Highway 184, according to the California Highway Patrol.

At approximately 10:01 p.m., CHP responded to a crash involving a car and pedestrian on Highway 184, south of Hickory Lane. During its preliminary investigation, CHP concluded the pedestrian, a 49-year-old woman, was walking outside of a crosswalk.

The driver of the vehicle, Enrique Torres, was traveling southbound on Highway 184 at approximately 55 miles per hour as he approached the woman. The woman stepped into the southbound traffic lane and subsequently hit by Torres.
