On Monday, April 29, 2019, at approximately 8:10 PM, officers from the Palm Desert Police Department responded to report of a major injury traffic collision in the area of Town Center Way and Hahn, Palm Desert. Upon the officer’s arrival, they located a collision involving a pedestrian and a Ford pickup truck. Preliminary investigation revealed the pedestrian, a 77-year-old Caucasian male from Palm Desert was crossing Town Center Way outside of the designated crosswalk when he was struck by a Ford truck traveling southbound on Town Center Way.  The collision caused major injuries to the pedestrian who was treated at the scene by emergency medical personnel and transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.
