Several news sources have noted that "the woman was not in a crosswalk." Per the California Vehicle Code, it is not necessary for a crosswalk to be marked to be a crosswalk: Per California Vehicle Code Section 21950, pedestrians have the right-of-way in marked or unmarked crosswalks "Crosswalk" is defined in California Vehicle Code Section 275 as either: That portion of a roadway included within the prolongation or connection of the boundary lines of sidewalks at intersections where the intersecting roadways meet at approximately right angles, except the prolongation of such lines from an alley across a street. Any portion of a roadway distinctly indicated for pedestrian crossing by lines or other markings on the surface.
