The Coroner's Bureau says that Shelby Catherine Brady, 49, of Santa Barbara, passed away Thursday night.
(7:27 a.m.) A pedestrian was killed Thursday evening after being hit by a truck in Santa Barbara.

The crash happened about 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 4, near the intersection of Las Positas Rd. and Stanley Dr.

When police arrived, they found an unresponsive woman laying in the roadway. Officers performed CPR until paramedics arrived, but emergency responders were unable to revive the woman.
