An 83-year-old pedestrian was killed Monday when he was struck by a Ford Mustang in Desert Hot Springs.

The Mustang hit James Blaise Briel of Desert Hot Springs while he was walking “within the lanes of traffic” about 7 a.m. on Dillon Road, east of Corkill Road, according to California Highway Patrol Officer Jackie Quintero.

Briel was pronounced dead at the scene.

Alcohol or drugs do not appear to be factors, according to the CHP, which asked any witnesses to call Officer Gonzalez at 760-772-5300.
