A pedestrian was fatally struck on East Main Street in Barstow Friday afternoon. Authorities say 48-year-old Annette Threadgill was struck by a Chevrolet pickup at the intersection of East Main and Muriel Drive at 1:20 p.m. When police arrived, they found the victim trapped under the truck. She was transported to Barstow Community Hospital, where she passed away from her injuries.

Police say the Chevy driver, 23-year-old Caitlin Black, was waiting to turn left onto East Main from Muriel Drive, while Threadgill was waiting to cross East Main at the crosswalk. When the light turned green, Threadgill began crossing the street as Black pulled forward to make the turn, striking the pedestrian. She was knocked over and dragged underneath the truck.

“Our hearts go out to the family that lost their loved one in this accident. You might be busy and in a rush, but there’s no excuse for entering a crosswalk when there is a pedestrian there,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
