FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/ KGPE) – A man is dead after being hit by a vehicle on Monday evening according to the Fresno Police Department.

At 5:45 p.m., police responded to a vehicle versus pedestrian near Ashlan and Blythe, near the Noble Credit Union Bank.

Police say a vehicle was driving westbound on Ashlan when the man was hit. The driver said they did not see the victim until their car made contact with him.
