It happened just before 11 pm on Saturday near the intersection of Clovis and Santa Ana Avenues.
Police say a driver headed north on Clovis Avenue hit the man as he crossed the road.
The pedestrian was killed on impact.
Police say the man put himself in a dangerous spot.
"It appears that he was crossing across the center median outside of a crosswalk," says Clovis Police Sgt. Chris Berna.
A large stretch of Clovis Avenue was shut down through the morning as police investigated - but it has since reopened.
The driver involved in the crash stayed at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation.
