pedestrianAccidentOCEANSIDE, Calif. — A pedestrian was killed by an SUV while crossing an Oceanside roadway in a crosswalk, a police lieutenant said Sunday.

The incident occurred at 10:25 p.m. Saturday at San Luis Rey Mission Expressway (SR 76) and Benet Road, said Oceanside police Lt. Sean Marchand.

“Officers arrived on scene and determined that a Sport Utility Vehicle was traveling westbound on SR 76 approaching Benet Road. A pedestrian crossed the roadway in the crosswalk at this intersection. The SUV struck the pedestrian who was later declared deceased, despite the life-saving efforts performed on scene,” Marchand said.

The accident was under investigation, he said.”Alcohol does not appear to be a casual factor.”

The victim’s name was withheld pending notification of next of kin, Marchand said.
