Fatal Injury Traffic Collision

In the late evening of May 7th 2023, the Escondido Police Department responded to a traffic collision involving a vehicle versus a pedestrian.  The initial officers arrived on scene and began life saving measures.  The pedestrian was transported to the hospital by ambulance but succumbed to his injuries.  The collision resulted in the death of a 32-year-old Escondido resident.
A preliminary investigation has determined the pedestrian was crossing on West Valley Parkway, outside of the marked/controlled crosswalk in the area of 9th Avenue.  The pedestrian was found to be wearing dark clothing at the time of the collision.   
There was no evidence of intoxication found for driver of the vehicle.  Speed or unsafe driving does not appear to be a factor in the collision.   
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is encouraged to contact Officer Pete McCollough at 760-839-4930.
