Roadside Pedestrian Killed Standing by Vehicle
A roadside pedestrian died Tuesday after he was struck by a vehicle on I-15 near Baker. Police say the man was standing on the shoulder when a Kia Forte struck him. The fatal accident occurred around 9 p.m. on northbound I-15 near Mile Marker 105.
According to the California Highway Patrol (CHP), the driver of the Kia crossed over onto the right shoulder for unknown reasons. The vehicle then struck the roadside pedestrian. He suffered fatal injuries and died at the scene. The victim and two other pedestrians were standing outside of a parked Toyota Camry when the crash occurred.
