A 43-year-old Clovis man was killed early Sunday after he was struck by a pickup truck that left the scene, the California Highway Patrol reported.
The victim was identified Sunday afternoon by the CHP as Gavin Gladding.
Gladding apparently was running around 6 a.m. Sunday on the shoulder area of Friant Road, west of Willow Avenue, when he was struck by the pickup truck. Investigators said the truck was black, possibly a single-cab early 2000s model GMC Sierra.
The truck was traveling west on Friant Road west of Willow northeast of Fresno when it swerved off the road and hit the victim who was running on the north shoulder of Friant.

The driver of the truck left the scene, heading west on Friant Road. Witnesses could not give officers a description of the driver or a license plate, Taylor said.
CHP spokesman Victor Taylor said the jogger was pronounced dead at Community Regional Medical Center.
The GMC should have a shattered right-side passenger window, missing right-side mirror, and is possibly missing the front GMC grille emblem, Taylor said. It may also have front-end damage.
