Tragic Pedestrian Crash on Mira Mesa near Pacific Heights Boulevard Claims Life of 57-Year-Old Woman
SAN DIEGO, CA (September 22, 2023) – On Wednesday evening, a devastating pedestrian crash on Mira Mesa Boulevard resulted in the unfortunate loss of a 57-year-old woman’s life.
The collision occurred at approximately 8:15 p.m., at the intersection of Mira Mesa Boulevard and Pacific Heights Boulevard.
Preliminary investigations reveal that the woman was walking southward on Pacific Heights Boulevard when she attempted to cross the street against a red traffic signal. Tragically, at that moment, a 40-year-old man operating a 2016 Chrysler Pacifica van, traveling east on Mira Mesa, collided with the pedestrian.
Swiftly responding to the scene, first responders determined that the female pedestrian had succumbed to her injuries, pronouncing her deceased at the accident site. However, her identity remains undisclosed to the public pending notification of her next of kin.
In response to the incident, authorities temporarily closed both directions of the roadway, specifically between Lusk Boulevard and the intersection of Sequence Drive and Huennekens Street. The San Diego Police Department’s Traffic Division has assumed control of the ongoing investigation.
In this sorrowful time, the Sweet James team would like to extend its heartfelt condolences to the family of the victim.
