Authorities say a woman has been killed on a Southern California freeway after she fell, jumped or was pushed from a car.

City News Service says the woman apparently was alive when she was struck by several vehicles shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday on Interstate 210 in Sylmar. That's about 14 miles north of downtown Los Angeles.

Eastbound lanes reopened more than 9 1/2 hours later.

Los Angeles police say the woman appeared to be in her 30s and had a tattoo of an emblem and some writing on her neck.

The red car didn't stop and investigators are treating the death as a homicide.
