A man was killed Sunday night when he tried to cross Highway 180 on foot and was hit by a car.
The pedestrian was attempting to cross the highway from the center median just east of the Highway 41 off-ramp around 8:50 p.m. when he was hit by a white Lexus, CHP Sgt. Jeff Cipolla said.
The Lexus, with three people inside, veered to the right due to the collision and up a hill, causing it overturn. The occupants received minor injuries, Cipolla said.
Vehicles were directed through the shoulder of the highway as the CHP continue the investigation.
Never miss a local story.
Speeding and alcohol were not believed to be factors in the accident, Cipolla said.
