A driver struck and killed a pedestrian crossing the street in northwest Houston.

It happened at around 10:15 Monday night on FM 1960 near Highway 249. Police say the pedestrian was crossing the street, and not in a crosswalk, when he failed to yield the right of way to the driver of a green Toyota Tacoma traveling westbound on West FM 1960. The Tacoma then struck the pedestrian. The Toyota's driver then stopped and called 911.

The 51-year-old male pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene. His identity is pending notification to family members by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.

Police say alcohol is not believed to be a factor and no charges are filed in this case.
