Pedestrian Killed By Elderly Couple In Car Crash

On Thursday an El Cajon pedestrian man was struck and killed in a car accident. The force of the impact had shattered both of the car windows and crumpled the roof of the vehicle.

The residents that live near or along the Dehesa Road which is just west of Sycuan Casino called 911 around seven twenty that evening after they heard a woman screaming in the road.

The man was found dead when the California Highway Patrol Officers arrived to the scene. The man was later identified as a forty-three year old resident of El Cajon.

The CHP Investigators said that the woman driving the 1995 Honda Civic had struck the man who was walking in the roadway. The California Highway Patrol also stated that the woman was a seventy-three year old driver and there was an eighty-two year old passenger. Investigators think they were coming from the casino. When the elderly couple hit the man, they had received some bruises to their hands and face.

When the local NEWS wanted to ask the elderly couple some questions they didn’t walk to talk at that time. According to the report, it was really dark at the time of the accident and there were no street lights. 

When asked if the darkness could have played a factor in the accident, CHP stated it was possible. However, the man was walking in the traveled portion of the roadway.

The Investigators did rule out the use of drugs or alcohol for the driver of the car, however they have not said the same for the victim at this time. 

California Highway Patrol Sgt. Jim McNamara stated:

He again lives in this exact vicinity so what he was exactly doing we’re not sure but based on the evidence we suspect he was within the roadway at the time of the collision.

The traffic in the Dehesa Road area was delayed for awhile as the California Highway Patrol were investigating the accident.
