Woman killed in south Sacramento crash was ‘well outside’ crosswalk, police say

A pedestrian was struck and killed in a vehicle accident at Stockton Boulevard and Mack Road, closing the intersection and affecting south Sacramento traffic, police said Tuesday morning.

Sacramento police spokesman Officer Marcus Basquez said a woman was killed in a collision at the intersection, which was reported just before 5:15 a.m.

The woman was reportedly walking in the intersection along with a male, who was a few steps ahead of her when she was struck, according to Basquez. Both individuals were determined to have been “definitely well outside” of the nearest crosswalk at the time of accident, Basquez said.

The driver stayed at the scene and cooperated with authorities. Investigators said the driver showed no signs of impairment, did not appear to be speeding and had a green light at the time of the incident, according to Basquez. No arrests were made.

The intersection was fully reopened as of 9:15 a.m.

The identify of the pedestrian will be made available by the coroner’s office pending notification of family.
