Jaywalker Fatally Struck by Car on El Cajon Boulevard

A 67-year-old man was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street on 2800 El Cajon Boulevard, according to San Diego police.

The driver, a 27-year-old man, was headed westbound at about 9:55 p.m. Friday evening and did not see the pedestrian before striking him, said SDPD Sgt. Brad O' Donnell.

Without heeding signs warning against pedestrian crossings, the victim attempted to cross the street, said Donnell. After he was taken to a local hospital, the man died from his injuries.

It was unclear whether speed or alcohol was a contributing factor in the collision. An investigation is being conducted by the San Diego Police Traffic Unit.

No other information was immediately available.
