Authorities were dispatched to the scene of the crash at 6:45 a.m. after a driver attempting to turn into a driveway struck a man identified as Berhane Araya, 65, of Pittsburg, as he walked along the eastbound sidewalk.
Araya suffered critical injuries and was rushed from the scene to a hospital, where he did not survive and later pronounced dead.
