Cordero had been a pedestrian crossing Flower Street at roughly 7:30 p.m. before being struck by a vehicle.
The 53-year-old man was quickly rushed to Kern Medical Center, where he tragically did not survive his injuries.
California Highway Patrol officials are investigating the incident as there is a possibility that alcohol may hay have been a contributing factor. Authorities have not disclosed which party is suspected of being under the influence.
