VAN NUYS (  —  Authorities said a 33-year-old man was struck by a car and pronounced dead before being resuscitated in Van Nuys Saturday.

The unidentified victim was crossing Fulton Avenue and Oxnard Street around 9:35 p.m. against a green light, officials said.

“The driver had the green, eastbound on Oxnard,” said Sgt. Bill Kelly of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Valley Traffic Division.

The 18-year-old male driver stopped at the scene and was not deemed at fault, the sergeant said.

The victim was declared dead but later resuscitated.

Police were still trying to determine why the man walked into oncoming traffic.

Authorities have not ruled out possible intoxication on the victim’s part.
