The CHP is trying to figure out what caused a crash that killed a pedestrian.It happened around 8:15 p.m. at the intersection of California Avenue and Howard Avenue just east of Kerman.

Investigators say the victim was wearing dark clothes and may have been in the middle of the road when the driver struck him. At first officers thought the case was a hit and run, but it turns out the driver had a good reason to leave the accident scene
