A woman died Friday when she was trying to cross a Murrieta road, and was struck by a semi-truck, Patch has learned.

According to Fire Chief Matt Shobert, a woman was in the intersection of Murrieta Hot Springs Road and Madison Avenue when she was struck Friday morning. That's near the Walmart, south of Interstate 15.

According to a Murrieta Police Sgt. Jay Froboese, the woman was using the crosswalk when she was struck, at around 8:55 a.m.  She was trying to cross from the southeast corner of Murrieta Hot Springs Road and Madison, to the northeast corner of that same intersection— walking away from the Walmart.

Police on scene said it's believed the truck was a cement truck.

"As she stepped off the curb walking north, a Freightliner semi truck and trailer combination making a right turn from northbound Madison Avenue to eastbound Murrieta Hot Springs Road struck her knocking her to the ground," Froboese said.  "The female adult ended up under the truck's trailers and was deceased upon the police departments arrival."

According to the sergeant, no arrests have been made in this case, as the fault has not been determined, and the investigation is ongoing.

"Traffic officers are interviewing a number of witnesses who saw the collision," he said.

Murrieta police on scene told Patch it's believed a cement truck hit the woman.

The woman's identity is being withheld, pending notification of next of kin.

Murrieta Patch will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.

@ Neil Simard, in regards to my mother's death (I'm the daughter of Kimberly Renteria), I want that video removed. My family is already suffering enough and I don't need a video going around of someone who was so dear and close to my heart. It's very disrespectful and hurtful towards the rest of my family. Thanks

And thank you to everyone else for your kind & thoughtful comments. She was an amazing and loving mother who always put others before herself. There's no words to explain how much I miss her & how great of a person she is. As sad as I am with this tragedy, at least she is in a better place and I know that she has and always will love her friends and family.

I'm not going to give any of the "Patch Trolls" any satisfaction buy naming names directly buy I also live off of Las Brisas. Yes a few cars speed on that street occasionally. But I for on do not and from what I can see is that most do not. I do my walks on Las Brisas and all the cars I see are driving safely. If I personally see a car I think is speeding I would hesitate to yell at the driver to slow down. I don't have to do it often but when I do the driver will slow down more than half the time. All the internet trolls who want to start shit by making false statement just to get people to respond to your post are pathetic excuses for human beings. ALL OTHER NON-INTERNET TROLLS READ THIS AND PAY ATTENTION. If you respond to them they get off on it like a serial rapist getting gratification. Simply stop responding. Eventually they will go away. These people only have negative, mostly made up, comments and constantly trash our community with their words. Never will you get a positive statement from these trolls. Murrieta is an awesome community. Not everyone who was involved in an accident was texting, speeding, or bull-shitting with the passengers. Not all criminals are illegal aliens. And if you pay attention most of the serious crime is committed by people who don't even live in our wonderful city. Leave the trolls alone. If you feed them they will continue to return for more attention just to get under your skin!

Who is Lane Media? And, how DARE they post some of those photos showing the remains of that poor woman! Those photos should be pulled immediately! I am disgusted that anyone would do something like this...I happen to know exactly what some of the items in those photos are and they do not belong in the public. People who saw the reality of this accident have been traumatized for life. Why traumatize anyone else? This is ethically irresponsible of Lane Media and by association Murrieta Patch.

I am the person who spoke out about this long ago to educate the public on slowing down and watching for peds exiting The walking Live. Please please stop behind the line and look before you make your turn. I see people do not even look to see if anyone is there they just do not seem to care. Educate the public speed kills, So does people who do not drive correctly. From the Walking Live. To the family sorry for your great loss my heart is with the family. Prevention is key another sensless tragedy.
