A woman was killed this morning in Pleasanton as she tried to run across the Interstate 580 Freeway, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. As witnesses told California Highway Patrol officers, the woman, who was in her 50s, ran onto the interstate’s eastbound lanes near Santa Rita Road around 6:15 a.m. on February 24, 2012. She reportedly had been running toward the center divider and waving her hands in the air, the Chronicle says, according to witnesses who shared the information with officers.

A driver in his 40s hit the woman in a middle lane where he had been following other traffic. CHP officer Steve Creel said in the Chronicle’s news story that the man had not seen the woman on the freeway until the car that was directly in front of him veered to avoid the woman. According to Officer Creel, investigators do not as yet know why the woman was running on the freeway. No other information is currently available.
