A pedestrian hit by a vehicle in Rio Linda earlier in the month has died.

The California Highway Patrol said a motorist was eastbound on Cement Drive at 6:30 a.m. May 2 at about 5 mph. Miller was walking southbound in a marked pedestrian crosswalk across Cement Way at Blacktop Road.

The driver began to turn left when the right front portion of his pickup struck Miller, according to the CHP. Miller fell backward onto the asphalt roadway.
