California Highway Patrol officials have identified 29-year-old Esteban Zuniga as the Grover Beach man struck and killed by a vehicle driven by a Santa Maria man on Highway 101 in Arroyo Grande on Dec. 3. 

The collision was reported shortly before 2:30 p.m. when the California Highway Patrol received a 911 call that a 2016 Honda Accord had struck a man just south of North Halcyon Road, according to Officer Tobias Adrianse. 

The Accord, which was driven by a 28-year-old unidentified man from Santa Maria, was traveling southbound in the left lane when it struck Zuniga, who was ejected onto the center median.

Zuniga, who was not wearing a helmet, was pronounced dead at the scene minutes later, according to Tobias.

Alcohol and/or drug intoxication is not believed to be a factor, according to Adrianse. 

Anyone who may have witnessed the collision is asked to contact the San Luis Obispo CHP Office at 805-594-8700.
