SANTA CLARITA - A 72-year-old man who suffered mortal injuries when he was hit by a minivan while crossing Wiley Canyon Road in Valencia on Wednesday night has been identified as Valencia resident Marlin Stowers.

Stowers was hit in the No. 1 lane of Wiley Canyon Road just east of Orchard Village Road around 6:10 p.m. Wednesday, according to Santa Clarita Valley sheriff’s Detective Travis Kelly.

There was no crosswalk at the location where Stowers was hit.

He was transported from the scene to the hospital, where he later died of his injuries.

Coroner’s department spokesman Ed Winter said an autopsy is still pending.

Kelly said alcohol does not appear to have been a factor in the crash.

“It just seems to be a pure accident,” he said.
