A man was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated and hitting a pedestrian who died in the hit-and-run collision in Pasadena early Sunday morning, the Pasadena Police Department said.
A gray pickup truck hit the man who was crossing the street in the area of Colorado Boulevard and Madison Avenue at about 3: 15 a.m., Police Lt. Peter Hettema said.

Officers later found a truck with damage to its front grill in a parking structure about four blocks away from the collision site, authorities said.
Authorities called the truck’s owner, 41-year-old Higinio Arceo, who came back to the vehicle.
