The victim, who has been identified as a 53-year-old Oakland resident, appears to have been walking east in the roadway in the 3100 block of International Boulevard shortly after midnight when he was struck by the eastbound van, according to police.

Paramedics pronounced the victim dead at the scene. His identity has not yet been released pending notification of his family.
