Pedestrian struck, killed by SUV in East County

LAKESIDE (KUSI) – A pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle in the unincorporated community of Lakeside, near Santee.

The crash was reported at 5:45 p.m. Friday at 12250 Woodside Ave., according to E. Parra of the California Highway Patrol’s El Cajon office.

A black 2012 Nissan Pathfinder was traveling eastbound on Woodside Avenue in the No. 2 lane at about 35 mph, with a pedestrian walking southbound on the street and not in a crosswalk, Parra said. The victim walked into the eastbound No. 2 lane directly into the Nissan’s path.

Paramedics treated the victim at the scene, then took him to Sharp Memorial Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.


(A previous version of this story that moved Friday identified the vehicle as a San Diego Metropolitan Transit System bus.)
