Girl, 15, Fatally Hit By Car While Walking Along Freeway

ACTON (AP) Authorities say a 15-year-old girl who was fatally struck by a car on the Antelope Valley Freeway in Acton walked into the path of the oncoming car.

The girl, whose name was not immediately released, was struck and killed about 12:40 p.m. Sunday, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The patrol tells City News Service the girl had been walking along the shoulder on the northbound side of the freeway when she suddenly stepped into the 65-mile-per-hour traffic.

The driver of a car that hit her stopped. He was not cited by the highway patrol.
