pedestrian fatally struck at Encinitas crosswalk collision

Posted on September 18th, 2017 by Mona Zemsky

A 61-year-old pedestrian, Carmen Gonzalez, was fatally struck in an Encinitas crosswalk on Friday, September 15, 2017. A vehicle had stopped for the crossing pedestrian at Encinitas Boulevard and Balour Drive; a second driver drove around the stopped vehicle, striking and killing the pedestrian. The victim was taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital where she died.

The female driver remained at the scene and spoke with deputies, though it is not certain if she was cited. Sheriff’s Deputy Oscar Butler indicated that alcohol was not a factor in the crash but the North Coastal Traffic Division of the San Diego Sheriff’s Office is still investigating.
