A 55-year-old man died Sunday night after he was struck by a vehicle as he walking across Walnut Avenue in Carmichael.

The collision was reported at about 8:50 p.m. north of Marconi Avenue. A 2001 Volkswagen Beetle driven by an 18-year-old Carmichael woman was northbound on Walnut Avenue when the man, walking westward across Walnut Avenue from the right shoulder, crossed directly into the path of the Volkswagen, according to a California Highway Patrol news release.
