A driver struck and seriously injured a pedestrian Friday night in Oceanside, prompting the closure of North El Camino Real just north of state Route 76, police said.

It happened shortly before 8:15 p.m. on El Camino Real near Coco Palms Drive, according to police. It was not immediately clear how the crash occurred, but the victim, a man in his 50s, was airlifted to a hospital with what were believed to be major injuries.

The driver of the vehicle that struck the pedestrian remained at the scene, a police sergeant said.

Traffic investigators responded and officers shut down both directions of El Camino Real at Los Arbolitos Boulevard and Coco Palms Drive, according to police spokesperson Jennifer Atenza, who said police hoped to reopen the roadways before 11 p.m.

No other details were immediately available.
