Man hit, killed crossing central Fresno street identified

The man struck and killed Wednesday night in a collision near Golden State Boulevard between Pine and McKinley avenues has been identified as David Taylor, 38, of Fresno, the Fresno County Coroner’s Office said.

The man had crossed the dark street once, and then for an unknown reason had backtracked to the other side of the street when he was struck by a four-door Buick.

The driver of the vehicle remained on scene and was cooperating with police, and Lt. Dave Ramos with the Fresno Police Department said the driver may just not have seen the man in the poorly-lit section of the street.
