A 67-year-old man was killed when he tried to cross a San Diego street that had no pedestrian crossing and was struck by a vehicle, police said Saturday.

It happened at 9:55 p.m. Friday in the 2800 block of El Cajon Boulevard, said San Diego police Sgt. Brad O'Donnell.

The man "attempted to cross the street north to south despite the fact there were signs stating no pedestrian crossing," O'Donnell said.

A 27-year-old man was driving his vehicle westbound, did not see the pedestrian and struck him, the sergeant said.

The pedestrian died from his injuries while going to a hospital, O'Donnell said.

"It was determined (neither) speed nor alcohol was a contributing factor in the accident," he said.

The man's name was not released pending notification of kin.
