Surveillance video from a Chula Vista business has given police new details surrounding the death of a woman hit by a car and dragged 200 feet on the street, only to then be struck by three more drivers.

The Chula Vista Police Department (CVPD) said Wednesday the video shows the victim walking eastbound on Main Street between Hilltop Drive and Albany Avenue just after 10 p.m. Sunday when she is hit by a car. The victim is carried about 200 feet by the vehicle before coming to rest in the roadway.

Police said the video shows several witnesses in cars approaching the woman and driving around her. Then, she is hit again – three times.

The CVPD said a dark-colored, 4-door sedan hit the woman and then continued eastbound on Main Street. About a minute later, a dark-colored pickup truck struck the victim again and also kept driving. Less than a minute after that, a third vehicle, also a dark-colored pickup truck hit her again.
