A man walking along a street in Chula Vista Thursday night died after being struck by a car, police confirmed.
The pedestrian was walking in the 600 block of E Street around 10:15 p.m. when he was hit by a car driving westbound. Several bystanders called 911 to report the collision. When police arrived at the scene, they discovered the victim unconscious, suffering from critical injuries.
He was rushed to UCSD Medical Center where he died a short time later.
