Authorities have identified the man who was struck and killed by an SUV Saturday night as 21-year-old Chico State student Nickolas Klein.
Police say Klein 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 parked cars.
First responders found Klein unresponsive on West Seventh Street's north side curb and administered CPR. He was then transported to Enloe Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
The driver of the Trail Blazer was voluntarily taken in to undergo blood tests. Police have not released the results of those tests.
