A 42-year-old man walking along the street in Huntington Beach was fatally injured when struck by a car Sunday night.

According to Jessica Cuchilla, public information officer for the HBPD, the incident took place after 10:30 p.m. on Beach Boulevard, south of Ellis Avenue.

Arriving officers found the pedestrian in the roadway in critical condition. He was taken to a local hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

The driver of the vehicle – a black 2008 Toyota Camry – remained at the scene and cooperated with officers. Impairment of the driver, a resident of Hemet, doesn’t appear to be a factor.

Police believe the Camry was traveling northbound on Beach and struck the pedestrian south of Ellis Avenue. The pedestrian was not in a crosswalk.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone who may have witnessed the collision or events leading up to it are asked to contact HBPD Traffic Investigator J. Rounds at (714) 536-5670.
