SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 53-year-old man was struck and killed by a car as he attempted to cross a University Heights street, police said.

It happened around 11:35 p.m. Sunday in the 4300 block of Texas Street, near El Cajon Boulevard, San Diego police Officer John Buttle said.

The man, who was using a walker, attempted to cross Texas Street outside a crosswalk and was struck by a 45-year-old man driving a 2015 Chevrolet Cruze sedan southbound on the road, Buttle said.

The victim, whose name was not immediately available, was taken to a hospital, where he was later pronounced dead, the officer said.

The sedan driver remained at the scene and cooperated with officers, Buttle said, adding that intoxication was not a factor in the crash.
