An elderly man was fatally injured when struck by a vehicle in Sunset on Monday morning as he attempted to cross a dark and busy street.
Sunset police Detective Bruce Arbogast said 85-year-old Darrel Thompson was not in a crosswalk as he walked west to east, apparently to reach a bus stop near 2300 North and Main Street. About midway, at 7:01 a.m., he was hit by a full-sized Chevrolet pickup.
