MISSION HILLS (CBS) — A woman who got out of a stalled vehicle on the northbound San Diego (405) Freeway in Mission Hills was fatally struck Saturday by a Toyota Camry, the California Highway Patrol said.

The Camry, which was driven by a 31-year-old Lancaster resident, struck 49-year-old Rosa Margarita Montiel of Tehachapi just south of the freeway’s junction with the Golden State (5) Freeway about 2:15 a.m., according to the CHP and a coroner’s spokesman.

The stalled vehicle was on the shoulder of the freeway, but Montiel apparently walked into traffic, according to the CHP.

    Very sad to hear of this, if you have a car stall out pull as far to the side as you can and if you get out, get out on the passenger side, be sure to turn on your flashers. God rest this person and God help this person who hit her.
