According to officials, the pedestrian was a 50-year-old male. California Highway Patrol says that he appeared to be walking close to the edge of the road near Diablo Drive prior to the collision.

The San Luis Obispo Fire Department performed CPR on the victim on scene, but the victim eventually died from his injuries.

The driver is a 24-year-old woman from Grover Beach and did not have any passengers with her at the time of the collision, according to CHP. The driver was not hurt.
