PEDESTRIAN FATALITY on HWY4 in PITTSBURG
Tonight at about 9:01pm, Contra Costa CHP was advised of a solo vehicle collision with a pedestrian on HWY-4 eastbound, just west of Loveridge Road in Pittsburg. Upon emergency personnel and CHP arrival, it was determined an adult male pedestrian (unknown identity and age) was struck by a vehicle within the #4 lane of the roadway and pronounced deceased. The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Coroners Office will be handling the release of identity of the deceased male once he has been officially identified.
A solo male driver of a White Nissan sedan was traveling eastbound on HWY-4 and approaching Loveridge Road, when the pedestrian, that was reported walking in the center divide, ran across the roadway and directly in the Nissan’s path. The driver of the Nissan was unable to avoid the pedestrian in the roadway and struck him. Unfortunately the pedestrian did not survive and was pronounced deceased on scene. The driver of the Nissan remained on scene and was cooperative throughout the investigation.
It is unclear if drugs or alcohol are a factor in this collision as it pertains to the pedestrian, and is still under investigation.
If anyone witnessed this collision or the events leading up to it, please contact Contra Costa CHP in Martinez, (925) 646-4980. Thank you.
