PHOENIX -- A pedestrian was killed while crossing a street in Phoenix late Friday night, according to police.

Shortly before 10 p.m., 62-year-old Jose Valencia was crossing Indian School Road mid-block near 79th Avenue, Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Tommy Thompson said.

He failed to yield to traffic and was struck by a westbound Dodge pickup truck, Thompson said.

The 50-year-old driver of the pickup truck remained at the scene, and police determined she was not impaired or speeding.

It is unknown if Valencia was impaired.
