LANCASTER — A man crossing the street was hit by a car and killed in Lancaster Sunday night, authorities said.
The fatal collision happened around 10:40 p.m., Sunday, Jan. 17, on Sierra Highway near Avenue H, according to Sgt. David Jennings of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station.
“Preliminary information gathered at the scene indicates the driver of a 2011 BMW 328i was travelling north on Sierra Highway, just north of Avenue H-8. As she passed what would be approximately Avenue H-2, a male pushing a pocket bike [mini motorcycle] crossed Sierra Highway from east to west and into the path of the BMW,” Jennings stated in a news release.
The man was struck by the BMW and sustained fatal injuries.
“Neither alcohol nor drugs appear to be a factor,” Jennings stated.
