    A memorial service was held Monday to honor a University of San Diego student who was struck and killed by two vehicles while walking on a Clairemont area freeway over the weekend. 

    Stella Yeh, 19, was walking on southbound Interstate 805 south of State Route 52 when she was struck by an oncoming car, a law enforcement official said. The crash occurred just after 1:30 a.m. Saturday. 

    California Highway Patrol (CHP) Officer Jake Sanchez said Yeh was struck by two vehicles, both of which remained on scene.

    Investigators are still trying to figure out where and who Yeh was with before the accident.

    Yeh was a second-year student at the University of San Diego majoring in Behavioral Neuroscience with the College of Arts and Sciences, according to the university. 

    A memorial service was held Monday afternoon during a daily mass at USD's Founders Chapel.
