ORANGE, Calif. (Feb. 29, 2024) — A suspected DUI driver struck and killed a pedestrian Friday night on Lincoln Avenue, just west of Berkeley Street in Orange.

The 51-year-old Anaheim man was hit by one or more vehicles at around 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 23rd, the California Highway Patrol said.

The 60-year-old Yorba Linda man driving a Ford pickup truck struck the victim in the eastbound lanes of Lincoln Avenue, the CHP said.

Meanwhile, the pedestrian sustained major injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. However, the Orange County Sheriff Coroner has not released his name.
