BONITA, Calif. - A woman was struck and killed by a car Thursday night while she was pulled over on the side of an off-ramp at northbound Interstate 805, according to California Highway Patrol.

Sgt. Michael Vargas said CHP officers were flagged down around 7 p.m. and notified of the accident at the off-ramp to Bonita Road.

A white Toyota Camry hit the female as she stood outside of a Lincoln Town Car, Vargas said. The Lincoln was partially blocking the road and it appeared that a tire was blown out. The driver of the Toyota remained at the scene after the accident.

CHP officers are investigating why the woman's belongings were in the roadway and why she was pulled over on the side of the road. A tow truck driver, who may have witnessed the crash, spoke to CHP officers at the scene.
