A pedestrian struck and killed by a vehicle on Roberts Lane Tuesday evening has been identified as 22-year-old Angel Staten.

The Bakersfield resident was hit 113 feet west of Higgins Drive at 10:10 p.m. and died at Kern Medical Center Wednesday afternoon, according to a coroner's office news release.

California Highway Patrol officers said Staten walked directly into the path of a vehicle driven by 22-year-old Chad Snook. He tried to stop but was unable to avoid hitting Staten.

Snook was not arrested, officers said.
