GILBERT — A 67-year-old man is dead after being struck by a vehicle in Gilbert Sunday morning.

Gilbert police say the man was walking on Williams Field Road near Granite Street when he was struck by a vehicle traveling westbound.

Annette Vasquez was driving by just seconds after the crash.

"I just ran to his side and I kneeled down, and my instincts just went to him. I started giving him CPR the best I could - just compression's, but in my mind, I knew he wasn't in the best shape."

A nurse herself, Vasquez knows she couldn't bring the man back, but she tried everything she could.

"It's just in my nature to help and I felt, I just felt like I couldn't do anything for him."

The roadway from Val Vista to Palomino Creek Drive was closed for several hours while police investigated.

The roadway was reopened around 4:30 p.m.
