Female pedestrian hit and killed on Highway 101

The California Highway Patrol received a call just after 11:00 Saturday night after a vehicle hit a pedestrian. The collision happened on southbound Highway 101 just north of Milpas Street in Santa Barbara.

The CHP says a female pedestrian was walking across the lanes of the freeway. While crossing, the 26 year-old was hit and killed initially by a Honda and then struck by multiple cars. There was a dog that was also hit and killed by passing cars.
