A woman was struck and killed by a car when he ran out into lanes of traffic in a community west of Perris on Wednesday, March 21, according to California Highway Patrol officials.

The incident happened shortly after 2 p.m. on State Route 74 east of Greenwald Avenue in the unincorporated community of Meadowbrook, according to a CHP news release written by Officer Mike Lassig.

The woman, a 56-year-old from Perris, was standing on the south roadway shoulder of SR-74 just east of Greenwald Avenue and was seen by witnesses stepping in and out of the eastbound number two lane.

At some point, the woman ran out into traffic lanes toward the other side of the road. That's when he was struck by a 2013 Mazda 3 being driven by a 28-year-old Perris man at about 45 mph, according to the release.

The pedestrian came to a rest on the south shoulder. She was pronounced dead at the scene by arriving Cal Fire/Riverside County Fire Department firefighters.

The woman's name was not being released Wednesday night pending notification of his family members.

"The California Highway Patrol would like to remind all pedestrians to stay as far right on the shoulders or sidewalks as possible and only cross roadways in marked locations such as a crosswalk," wrote Lassig in the release.
