One man is dead after he was struck by an oncoming vehicle Saturday night.

The unidentified 21-year-old male was attempting to cross the street at the intersection of West Seventh and Hazel streets when he was hit head-on by a Chevy Trail Blazer. The vehicle then collided with two park vehicles just after striking the victim.

First responders found the victim unresponsive on West Seventh's north side curb and administered CPR. The victim was transported to Enloe Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Chico Police Department's Major Accident Investigation Team examined the scene until the early hours of Sunday morning.

The driver was voluntarily taken in to undergo blood tests. Police have not released the results from those tests.
