A woman in Clearlake has been hit and killed by a car. Clearlake police say the driver was headed south on Highway 53 when he hit Bernadette Patrick Monday night. They say Michael Jefferson was the driver and that there were no crosswalks or sidewalks in the area and that Patrick was hit near Lakeshore Drive and died on the scene. They say they do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash and say Jefferson stopped and cooperated with police, but they’re investigating still.
