On Thursday morning, a pedestrian was fatally struck by an MTS bus in El Cajon. According to ABC San Diego News Channel 10, the incident happened on the 1300 block of Madison Avenue near 2nd Street at about 5:20 a.m. Very little information has been released about the crash, but initial reports indicate that the pedestrian stepped out from between two parked cars and into the path of the oncoming bus.
The bus driver pulled over and fully cooperated with first responders. The pedestrian was rushed to a local hospital for treatment, but did not survive his injuries. A portion of the roadway had to be closed as crews and investigators worked the scene. This incident could still be under investigation with local law enforcement officials.
