A pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle in La Quinta Tuesday afternoon.

The collision was reported shortly after 1:20 p.m. at Fred Waring and Palm Royale drives, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

Sheriff's Deputy Armando Munoz said the female driver remained at the scene and was cooperating with authorities. He said alcohol, drugs and the motorist's speed weren't factors in the crash.

The identity of the victim, a man in his early 50s, was being withheld until his next-of-kin could be notified.

Munoz said the victim was not in a crosswalk when he was struck.
