Last week, a pedestrian was fatally struck by a vehicle in El Cajon. According to ABC San Diego News Channel 10, the incident happened in the 1000 block of Johnson Avenue at about 5:30 a.m. on Thursday morning. Very little information has been released about this incident, but we do know that the pedestrian was hit by a pickup truck. The driver involved did remain on the scene to cooperate with authorities.
Although first responders rushed to the scene, the pedestrian did not survive his or her injuries.
