Citlalli Santana identified as the woman found dead on the 60 Freeway @ Indian St.

Update: The driver of a big rig truck swerved to avoid hitting the woman who was down in traffic lanes. It’s unknown if that truck struck her or if she was already down on the freeway.

Cal Fire Riverside Fire Department responded and located the woman on the right shoulder of the freeway, just east of Pigeon Pass Road.  Unfortunately, Santana died of her injuries at the scene of the crash.

It’s unknown whether or not the motorist who struck the woman stopped.

The collision remains under investigation by the CHP’s Riverside station.
