A pedestrian was struck and killed just before sunrise Wednesday on State Street, near Veterans Memorial Parkway.
The driver of the vehicle, identified only as a 45-year-old Boise man, was uninjured in the crash. Investigators diverted traffic from the busy thoroughfare through much of the Wednesday morning rush hour. The Ada County coroner is expected to identify the victim later in the day, pending notification of family.
