PHOENIX -- Police say a 62-year-old man has died after he was hit by a truck while crossing a street in west Phoenix.

Sgt. Tommy Thompson said Jose Valencia was crossing Indian School Road mid-block, east of Amelia Avenue, just before 10 p.m. Friday.

Thompson said Valencia failed to yield the right of way to oncoming traffic and was struck by a Dodge pickup truck which was heading westbound on Indian School.

Authorities said Valencia died at the scene. It's unknown if Valencia was impaired in any way.

Thompson said the 50-year-old man driving the pickup stayed at the scene.

They said the driver showed no signs of impairment and that speeding was not a factor.
