The woman was hit by her husband’s car in the intersection of Bay Boulevard and H Street in Chula Vista just after 8 p.m. Rescuers performed CPR on the woman before taking her to UCSD Medical Center, where she died.
Police said the victim, who was in her 30s, either jumped out of the car on her own or was shoved out.
“The investigation right now is still ongoing trying to determine all the situation — if she was a passenger in the car or if she was outside the car,” a spokesman for the Chula Vista Police Department said. “We’re not sure if she jumped out herself or if she was outside the car. We’re trying to determine if there was an argument or what was going on.”
Investigators shut down both streets during the investigation.
They said that alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the death.
