The victim ran from the east shoulder across eastbound and westbound lanes and was struck by a westbound 2019 Hyundai driven at about 55 mph by a 50-year-old Burbank woman, Banta said.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, the sergeant said. His name was withheld pending notification of relatives.
