OCEANSIDE, Calif. -- A woman suffered serious injuries Monday when she was struck by a vehicle while she was walking on a transition ramp between state Route 76 and Interstate 5 in Oceanside after her car ran out of gas.

The collision happened around 2:30 a.m. on the transition ramp from southbound I-5 to westbound SR-76, according to the California Highway Patrol.
