A pedestrian was killed in a collision with a car near the Muni stop at Stonestown Galleria on Saturday morning.

In the incident, which took place around 1:39 a.m. at 19th Avenue and Winston Drive, a 40-year-old male pedestrian was crossing 19th Avenue "against a red signal" when a driver with "a solid green light" struck him in the crosswalk, police reported.

The pedestrian was transported to a hospital, but he succumbed to his injuries before he could be treated. The driver remained at the scene and was not arrested.

Saturday's crash occurred on the city's high injury network, the 12 percent of surface streets where approximately 70 percent of pedestrian fatalities and injuries occur.
