SAN DIEGO — A construction worker was hit and killed early Wednesday on state Route 94 in Spring Valley.
Shortly after midnight, a 24-year-old El Cajon woman was driving eastbound on SR-94 east of Avocado Boulevard when her car traveled to the right and into the closed No. 2 lane of a construction zone, hitting a construction worker, according to California Highway Patrol. The worker, a 41-year-old man employed by Granite Construction, died at the scene.
The involved driver stayed at the scene, CHP said. Alcohol or drugs were not believed to have been a factor in the collision.
A second crash occurred while traffic was backed up. Minor injuries were reported from that collision.
CHP closed all eastbound lanes between Sweetwater Springs Boulevard and Calavo Drive for approximately seven hours while the agency conducted an investigation.
