REDDING, Calif. -

Parts of Hilltop Drive were closed Tuesday evening as police investigated a fatal vehicle versus pedestrian accident. 

60-year-old David Gilbert Holguin was hit by the vehicle and died from blunt force injuries. A witness told Redding Police that a man wearing dark clothing stumbled in front of a green 2005 Kia Sodona that was driving southbound on Hilltop just past the Mistletoe intersection about 6:40 p.m.

Police officials said the 24-year old driver didn't see the man stagger into the road in front of her and struck him.

Houlgin was transported to Mercy Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead.
