It happened at around 6:30 this morning (12/21), on Ventura Avenue near Shoshone Street.  Witnesses say the woman, and her dog were headed across Ventura Avenue in a crosswalk when they were struck by the southbound vehicle.  Both the 65 year old woman, and her dog were pronounced dead at the scene.  Her name hasn’t been released pending notification of family.
