SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – A 60-year-old man was struck and killed by a Ford Escape while walking east along the 7600 block of Linda Vista Road in the Clairemont Mesa East neighborhood of San Diego, police said.

The man, who was dressed in dark clothing, walked in front of a northbound Ford Escape SUV just before 10:25 p.m. Saturday, according to San Diego Police officer Robert Heims.

The victim was discovered lying face-down with no vital signs, he said.
