ADELANTO-( On Wednesday, June 3, 2015 at approximately 8:57 P.M., dispatch received a call reporting a pedestrian struck by a vehicle in the area of Baldy Mesa and Palmdale Road, just west of Highway 395.

Per scanner traffic, the pedestrian was initially believed to be a possible juvenile.

AMR units arrived on scene at approximately 9:08 P.M., and pronounced the pedestrian deceased upon arrival.

Based on early reports it was determined the pedestrian was an adult female, believed to be in her 20’s, and approximately four feet seven inches in height.
