Pedestrian Struck by Car During Bakersfield Protest Dies

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) – Bakersfield police say a person who walked across a roadway and was struck by a vehicle during a nighttime protest march last week has died. The pedestrian was struck Wednesday night and died Saturday. Police say the collision occurred as a group protesting the death of George Floyd marched on one side of an avenue while traffic flowed the opposite direction on the other side of a center median. Police say video evidence shows the pedestrian ran across lanes toward the median and was struck by a car traveling at the speed limit with its headlights on. The driver pulled over and passed sobriety tests.
