Woman in crosswalk hit by truck, killed in Oildale

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — A Tehachapi woman was killed Friday afternoon when she was hit by a truck in Oildale.

The truck's driver made a turn at the intersection of Merle Haggard Drive and McCray Street and struck the woman in the crosswalk, the California Highway Patrol said. The woman's name was later released by the coroner's office: 60-year-old Neva Yribarren.

Yribarren was transported to Kern Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead about 40 minutes after the crash.

The CHP hasn't said if it will recommend charges against the truck's driver.
