Elderly Woman Fatally Struck by Big Rig at Grocery Outlet on Poway Road
POWAY, CA (March 12, 2021) – An elderly woman who died in a pedestrian accident Wednesday morning in Poway has been identified.
A friend of the victim identified her as 81-year-old Adelaida San Miguel.
Around 9:40 a.m. on March 4, San Miguel was walking to Grocery Outlet in the shopping center in the 13300 block of Poway Road. While crossing the delivery access road behind the shopping center, a semi-tractor trailer traveling northbound struck her, dragging her about 50 feet and run over.
As a result, San Miguel suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene.
Alcohol and/or drugs are not believed to be a factor in the collision.
San Miguel’s friend has started a GoFundMe fundraiser, aiming to raise $5,000 to help with funeral expenses for San Miguel. As of 4:15 p.m. Monday, it had raised $2,405 from 48 donors.
The Sheriff’s Traffic Accident Reconstruction (S.T.A.R.) Team was called to the scene to assist in the investigation.
We would like to express our sincere condolences to the bereaved family and friends of Adelaida San Miguel.
