A man in his 60s was struck by a vehicle and killed this week in Palmdale.
The victim was hit about 11:35 a.m. Wednesday on Palmdale Boulevard near 12th Street East, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and a report from the scene.
The victim was struck by a silver 2014 Audi, not far from his own 2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser, which was also hit by the Audi, a sheriff’s deputy told reporters at the scene.
The pedestrian was thrown through the air and pronounced dead at the scene, the deputy said.
The other driver stopped at the scene.
It was not immediately clear if alcohol or drugs were involved in the fatality, but the Audi driver was taken to a hospital to have blood drawn, the deputy said.
