Man Struck and Killed by Truck in Escondido

A man was struck and killed Sunday by an oncoming truck on an Escondido road, officers said.

Witnesses said the man was walking in the crosswalk against the light at Broadway and Lincoln where traffic exits from State Route 78.

When a white Chevy pickup drove into the intersection just after 11 p.m., the driver struck the man who was in the eastbound lanes of Lincoln Avenue.

Escondido Police arrived and found the truck stopped in the roadway with the victim lying nearby. Escondido Fire medics transported the pedestrian to Palomar Hospital where he later died.

They say the truck driver did not see the victim in time to avoid the crash.

The victim has not been identified.

Officers said the driver of the pickup truck would not be charged or cited.
