YUMA, Arizona — Authorities in southwestern Arizona say a man is dead after being struck by two vehicles in Somerton.

Yuma County Sheriff's officials on Tuesday identified the victim as 68-year-old Jose Luis Varela Castillo of Somerton.

They say he was pronounced dead at the scene Monday morning.

Investigators say Castillo apparently was crossing Highway 95 about 5:30 a.m. on Monday when he was struck by a car.

They say he was hit a second time by a pickup truck a short time later while still down the roadway.

Sheriff's officials say alcohol doesn't appear to be a factor in the accident but the case remains under investigation.
