The collision occurred at around 8 p.m. on Oct. 7th, near Sweeney Road, according to the California Highway Patrol.
A driver in a minivan struck the man as he was attempting to cross Highway 246, the CHP said. The man was crossing from the northbound side when a Toyota Sienna hit him in the roadway.
