It happened just before 9 p.m. Tuesday on Highway 33 near Lost Hills Road, just east of Merced Avenue.
According to the CHP, the Silva was apparently walking in the middle of the roadway (State Route 33 also known as Jayne Avenue) when he was hit.
The driver that hit the pedestrian stopped and called authorities.
Officers say the driver is cooperating with the investigation and don’t believe alcohol or drugs played a factor in the crash.
