A 54-year-old Fresno man is dead after being struck by a vehicle while walking on Disneyland Drive and the suspect, a woman from La Mirada, has been arrested for allegedly driving under the influence, Anaheim police said Sunday.

It occurred at 11 p.m. Saturday on Disneyland Drive north of Katella Avenue. He was walking south on Disneyland Drive when a vehicle traveling north on Katella jumped the curb, struck a pole and an electrical box, then hit the man, said Sgt. Daron Wyatt, a public information officer with the Anaheim Police Department.

The man sustained major injuries and was transported to U.C. Irvine Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, Wyatt said. His name is being withheld pending notification of relatives.

A 47-year-old woman from La Mirada was arrested in connection with the crash and booked on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, police said.

Northbound Disneyland Drive is closed at Katella Avenue while the investigation continues.
