A San Pedro man was struck and killed by a motorist when he stepped off a sidewalk and onto a roadway in Long Beach, authorities said.

The accident occurred about 7 p.m. Friday near the intersection of 7th Street and Pepper Tree Lane, police said. Responding officers found a 59-year-old man lying in the roadway, according to police.

The victim, whose name was not released, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Detectives determined the driver of a Range Rover, a 62-year-old resident of Long Beach, “did not have enough time to stop prior to colliding with the pedestrian,” the statement said. The driver, who was not identified, cooperated with the investigation, according to the statement.
