Teenage pedestrian fatally struck

ESCONDIDO (KUSI) – A pedestrian in Escondido was struck and killed by an 86-year-old motorist, a police lieutenant said Sunday.    

The motorist stayed at the scene and alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash, said Escondido police Lt. Mike Kearney. It was not immediately known whether the woman was cited or arrested. 

The motorist, driving a gold 2008 Toyota Corolla, struck the pedestrian, an 18-year-old man, while going northbound on San Pasquel Valley Road, south of Oakhill Drive, Kearney said.   

Police dispatched to the scene at 8:50 p.m. Saturday attempted life saving measures to the pedestrian, who was suffering from major injuries to the
head, but the 18-year-old was pronounced dead at the scene.

Escondido police asked anyone with any information regarding the crash to call them at (760) 743-8477.
