It happened around 7 p.m. Monday at the intersection of 54th Street and University Avenue, San Diego police Officer John Buttle said.

A 61-year-old woman was driving a 2007 Nissan sedan southbound in the right lane of 54th Street when she proceeded through the intersection on a green light and struck a 63-year-old man, who was in the roadway near the south end of the intersection, Buttle said.
