CASTRO VALLEY, Calif. - A 28-year-old woman from Turlock who appeared to have exited out of a car died Monday morning at Interstate Highway 580 and the 238 connector in Castro Valley.
The California Highway Patrol reported the accident about 5 a.m.
Officer Daniel Jacowitz told KTVU that early reports indicate the woman jumped out of a vehicle, carrying several others, and began to walk along the road.
She was struck by a Honda CRV driven by a 71-year-old Castro Valley woman who was eastbound on I-580, Jacowitz said.
She was pronounced dead on scene.
Both drivers stayed and cooperated, the CHP said.
Jacowitz said the death was "tragic" and "avoidable."
