"This is a fairly dark industrial area. There aren't many street lights, and I believe if my memory serves me correctly the speed limit is 45 miles and hour obviously if some one is going 45 miles an hour it would be very east to miss a pedestrian in the roadway," explained Lieutenant David Rohowits with the San Diego Police Department.
