Pedestrian killed on Highway 33

An elderly man was killed around 9:30 p.m. Thursday when he was struck by a vehicle on Highway 33, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The 81-year-old man was pushing an unoccupied wheelchair near Woodland Avenue when he allegedly "walked directly out into a vehicle's path," said Officer Dave Webb of the CHP. The northbound vehicle, driven by a 33-year-old Ojai woman, was unable to avoid the man and struck him. "He succumbed to his injuries at the scene," said Webb.

No charges have been filed against the driver.
