An unidentified woman walking on Interstate 80 was struck and killed by a big rig Wednesday. The woman was walking in the number three lane on Interstate 80, just east of Douglas Boulevard in Roseville at around 4:45 a.m when she was struck by an 18-wheeler, according to CHP Officer Nico Bonfilio. CHP spokesman David Martinez said that after the woman was hit by the big rig she was then hit by a couple of other cars. Martinez said the accident was unavoidable and nobody was arrested. All traffic lanes are now open. The woman was believed to be by herself and was not carrying any identification. “We’re asking for the public’s assistance in identifying her,” Bonfilio said. “Hopefully something develops in this case so we can take care of it.” If you have any information as to the identity of the woman, call the Newcastle California Highway Patrol office at (916) 663-3344.
