A 65-year-old man crossing a street in Mesa was struck and killed Friday evening, police said.

Joseph Chavez was not in a crosswalk or an intersection with light signals when he was struck by a car driven by a 39-year-old woman, whose name was not released, said Mesa police Sgt. Tony Landato.

The accident happened at around 6 p.m. on McKellips Road near Pasadena.

The woman, who was not injured, was in her vehicle alone.

Landato said neither speed nor impairment appear to have been factors in the accident.
