A car struck and killed a pedestrian near the intersection of Buhne and S this morning. The entire block between Buhne and Huntoon was blocked off by law enforcement vehicles and tarps. Children walking on their way to school were being redirected. An officer on the scene was unwilling to provide details at this point only noting that the accident was "pretty significant."
Suzie Owsley told KSLG's John Matthews this morning that the victim was not a student at nearby Zane Middle School, nor is it believed that he or she was in any way associated with the school. Owsley said parents delivering their children to Zane this morning must approach from the north, rather than the Buhne side. The area of the accident will be closed to traffic for several hours.
The Lost Coast Outpost will provide more details when they become available.
UPDATE 9:30 a.m.: News Channel 3 is reporting that the adult female victim was walking her dog across the intersection when she was hit by a Chevy Silverado traveling east. The driver is cooperating with law enforcement.
UPDATE 11:26 a.m.: Friend of the Lost Coast Outpost Mark McKenna sent in the following photos from the scene:

"I've worn out several kidneys and several bladders already on bootleg rum, but I seem always ready to risk another." Poet Hart Crane is perhaps the quintessential literary tragic drinker. Though he achieved critical recognition from the avant-garde, poor reviews of his epic poem and last work, The Bridge, confirmed to him his feelings of failure and he took his own life at sea.
Crane favored rum, having once noted, "rum has a strange power over me, it makes me feel quite innocent -- or rather, guiltless". In his honor, we feature the Mai Tai tonight during The Cocktail Hour (6pm). Believed to have been invented by Victor Bergeron (Trader Vic) at his bar Hinky Dink's in Oakland, the Mai Tai is a complex drink but a summertime classic.
1 oz. light rum
1 oz. dark rum
0.5 oz. Grand Marnier
1 oz. lime juice
0.5 oz. orgeat (almond-flavored syrup)
0.5 oz. simple syrup
1 mint sprig
Fresh fruit for garnish (orange slice, pineapple chunk, etc.)
Umbrella (optional but strongly recommended)
Pour all ingredients (except mint, fruit and umbrella) into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled double Old-Fashioned glass filled with cracked ice. Garnish with mint spring, fruit and umbrella.
"I am not ready for repentance;
Nor to match regrets. For the moth
Bends no more than the still
Imploring flame. And tremorous
In the white falling flakes
The only worth all granting." -- Excerpted from "Legend" published in White Buildings (1926)
