FATAL PEDESTRIAN COLLISION IN EL CAJON

TYPE OF INCIDENT: FATAL PEDESTRIAN COLLISION

DATE AND TIME OF INCIDENT: 07/08/2020 @ 3:33 PM

LOCATION OF INCIDENT: 500 Block of North Second St

RESUME OF INCIDENT:

On 07/08/20 at approximately 3:30 PM, El Cajon Police Officers and paramedics responded to the area of 500 N. Second St. reference a call of a pedestrian that had been struck by a vehicle. The pedestrian was treated at the scene and transported to the hospital by Heartland Fire Department Medics. The pedestrian, an elderly male, died at the hospital.   

After a preliminary investigation of the scene and the interviewing of witnesses, it appears a silver Ford F150 was traveling southbound in the 500 block of N. Second in the left hand turn lane. The pedestrian was illegally crossing from west to east between stopped vehicles. The driver of the Ford had a green light and the pedestrian stepped in front of his moving vehicle and was struck. The driver of the Ford remained on scene and has been fully cooperative with investigators. At this point in the investigation, alcohol or drugs are not suspected to be a factor in the collision.

The El Cajon Police Department is asking anyone with information regarding this collision to call (619) 579-3311. We would also like to remind those who walk day or night to obey all traffic control devices, only cross the street at designated, controlled intersections, and wear bright or light colored clothing for visibility.
