Hortensia Perez of Encinitas was driving her Honda Civic on Rancho Santa Fe Road in Carlsbad about 10:15 p.m. Thursday when she apparently became distraught over the recent death of her father, according to the county Medical Examiner's Office.
Perez, who had a friend riding with her, pulled over onto a bicycle path near Camino Alvaro and stepped out of the car onto the roadway. As she did so, an oncoming Toyota SUV hit the Civic -- part of which was sticking out into the roadway -- then struck her.
Medics took Perez to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla, where she was pronounced dead about an hour after the accident, the medical examiner reported.
