The accident occurred Saturday just after 11 p.m. on Disneyland Drive north of Katella Avenue. The man was walking south on Disneyland Drive when a vehicle traveling north on Katella jumped the curb, struck a pole and an electrical box, then hit the man,  Anaheim Sgt. Daron Wyatt said.

The man had major injuries and was transported to UC Irvine Medical Center where he was pronounced dead, Wyatt said. His name is being withheld pending notification of family.

Northbound Disneyland Drive is closed at Katella Avenue as the investigation continues.
