ENCINITAS, Calif. — Deputies say a woman in her 50s was killed when a car hit her in Encinitas Saturday.

The San Diego Sheriff’s Department said on Twitter just after 8 p.m. that someone was hit by a car in the 2500 block of S. Coast Highway 101. Northbound lanes of traffic were blocked.

The sheriff’s department later said the victim, a woman in her 50s, died. The driver stayed at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation, deputies said. Drugs or alcohol do not appear to be a factor in the crash.
