A contractor was struck and killed by a car Monday on an Emerald Hills-area road while he was in the area surveying property, authorities said.
The 73-year-old pedestrian was crossing the street in the 5300 block of Geneva Avenue when the eastbound vehicle hit him shortly before 7:30 a.m., according to San Diego police.
The car then veered to the right and crashed into a parked vehicle, said Sgt. Tim Underwood.
The victim died at the scene. His name was withheld pending family notification.
The 25-year-old motorist was cooperating with police, said SDPD public-affairs Officer Billy Hernandez. It was not immediately clear who was at fault for the accident.
