A teen was hit and killed on Interstate 5 near Woodland when she got out of a car after an argument early this morning and ran into traffic lanes, according to the California Highway Patrol.
The CHP said that three people were traveling northbound on I-5 about 12:30 a.m. today in a Chevrolet Impala when an argument began in the car. The male driver pulled the car over to the right shoulder, just north of County Road 103.
One of the passengers, a 17-year-old girl, got out, along with the driver. The CHP believes they are cousins.
The passenger, who was upset, ran into the traffic lanes and was struck by a car going northbound. She suffered fatal injuries when hit by the car that did not stop.
The other passenger then got into the driver's seat of the Impala and drove away, leaving the other two behind. The CHP has not seen that person or the vehicle since.
The Impala is burgundy but had no license plates. Instead, a red temporary operating permit was in the rear window with a number seven listed.
The surviving passenger who drove away in the Impala might be able to describe the car that hit and killed the teen. The hit-and-run car most likely had damage, along the left side front fender, door, windshield and mirror.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Woodland CHP at (530) 662-4685.
