An adult pedestrian was struck by two vehicles and killed Thursday evening in Thousand Palms, and one vehicle’s driver fled the scene without stopping, authorities said.

The hit-and-run crash was reported at 5:26 p.m. at Ramon and Varner roads, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The driver of a black Kia Rio stopped, but a silver SUV that also struck the pedestrian continued southbound on Varner Road, the CHP said.

The Riverside County Fire Department described the victim as an adult who was pronounced dead at the scene.

No further details were immediately available.
