The unidentified man was struck by a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado driven by a 24-year-old Ramona man. According to the CHP, the driver was traveling eastbound at 50 miles per hour when he came around a curve and saw the pedestrian running across the roadway in front of him.
He did not have time to brake, but did swerve and try to avoid the collision. The right front bumper struck the pedestrian, who was knocked onto the shoulder and pronounced dead at the scene.
The collision remains under investigation (coroner’s case # 14-2462).
