Police are investigating an accident that killed a Los Banos man Friday evening.
According to the Modesto Police Department, the accident occurred at 8:30 p.m. on Yosemite Boulevard just east of Riverside Drive.
A 21-year-old woman from Turlock was driving a 2014 Buick Regal west on Yosemite when her car struck the 48-year-old man. The accident occurred in the right-hand lane of the road outside of the crosswalk.
The driver stopped immediately, and several passersby also stopped to try to help. But the pedestrian was declared dead at the scene. The driver suffered minor injuries and was treated at a local hospital. Authorities did not release the names of those involved in the accident.
The cause of the crash has not been determined. It appears neither the driver nor the pedestrian was under the influence of drugs or alcohol, police said.
Investigators are collecting statements from witnesses and processing evidence from the scene.
They ask anyone who saw the accident to contact traffic Officer Billy Boyle at (209) 652-3167 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
