A automobile fatally struck a pedestrian in El Cajon Monday, authorities reported.

The 2016 Kia Soul hit the 28-year-old girl on the intersection of East Principal Avenue and Roanoke Street shortly earlier than 6:30 a.m., in response to the El Cajon Police Division.

A patrol officer arrived to search out the sufferer unconscious and carried out CPR on her previous to the arrival of paramedics, ECPD Lt. Darrin Forster mentioned. An ambulance crew then took the girl to a hospital, the place she was pronounced lifeless. Her title was withheld pending household notification.
