A 29-year-old male was struck and killed by a driver in Lincoln just before midnight Friday.

The victim, a resident of Sacramento, was involved in a solo non-injury collision. He hit the center divide on Highway 65 near the 12 Bridges exit.

The man got out of his car to inspect the damages but when he walked around the car he stepped into the fast lane and was hit by a 19-year-old driver from Sacramento.

Officials do not suspect drugs or alcohol are involved in this case.
