California Highway Patrol investigates the scene where a vehicle reportedly struck a pedestrian Friday morning on eastbound Highway 50 near the Interstate 5 offramp.

A pedestrian was killed Friday morning after walking onto a lane connecting Highway 50 to Interstate 5, California Highway Patrol officials said.

An unidentified female walked directly into the path of a 2002 Toyota Camry transitioning from eastbound Highway 50 to southbound I-5 at about 5:12 a.m., according to a CHP news release.

The Toyota was driven by a 40-year-old Vacaville man, who was not injured or arrested, according to the release. The vehicle was traveling approximately 60 mph, CHP said.

The victim, who was not carrying identification, suffered fatal injuries after being struck by the Toyota and was later pronounced dead, CHP said.

Traffic was reduced to one lane near the scene of the collision for more than an hour, according to Caltrans. All roadways in the area have since reopened.

Anyone with information about the collision or the victim’s identity is urged to call CHP’s South Sacramento office at 916-861-1300.
