The California Highway Patrol confirmed this morning that 43-year-old Timothy Good died after being struck by a vehicle while walking on North Bank Road near the intersection of State Route 299. Good was on the east edge of roadway, walking north at around 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 24 when he was struck by a 2012 Toyota Corolla driven by Dena Lara, 33, who was traveling south.

Good was transported to Mad River Community Hospital where he was pronounced dead. Humboldt County is on track to record one of its deadliest years in history for vehicle fatalities, with Good's death marking the 30th this year.
