The San Diego Police Department reported pedestrians were killed in La Jolla and Grantville in separate, unrelated incidents on Monday night.

The first fatality was at 6 p.m. when a 40-year-old woman driving a 2012 Toyota Camry struck a 70-year-old man as he crossed in the 2500 block of Torrey Pines Road, according to police.

The pedestrian was taken to a hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Police investigators said alcohol was not a factor in the accident.

The second fatality occurred around 9 p.m. when a woman walking along the 4600 block of Alvarado Canyon Road was struck by the passenger-side mirror of a U-Haul truck driven by a 65-year-old woman.

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. No other information about the incident was immediately released.
