Around 8:00PM Monday night a male subject stepped off the curb on McDowell Road and into westbound traffic where he was struck by a Red Nissan Pick Up Truck traveling in the curb lane at about Granite Reef Road.

The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.

Neither speed or alcohol appear to be a factor and at this time no citations have been issued.
