SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 71-year-old man was fatally struck by a suspected drunken driver behind the wheel of a Toyota Scion in Kearny Mesa early Tuesday, authorities said.

A patrol officer found the pedestrian's body in the westbound lanes and shortly thereafter, spotted a vehicle about 200 yards away, Delimitros said.
