BAKERSFIELD, CA (KERO) — One woman has died after being hit by a vehicle off Rosedale Highway Thursday night. The Bakersfield Police Department says the victim was crossing Rosedale outside of a crosswalk when she was struck.

The incident took place just before 7 pm near Rosedale Hwy and Verdugo Lane. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the vehicle is cooperating with police, and DUI or drugs do not appear to be a factor, according to BPD.
