A pedestrian was killed after being hit by an 18-wheeler on I-35 in San Marcos on Saturday night.

The crash happened shortly before 6:30 p.m. Saturday evening on the northbound side of the freeway near the Aquarena Springs exit.

Crews found a woman who had been run over by an 18-wheeler. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
