Kings District RCMP say the pedestrian was on Highway 1 when he was struck by a passing car just before 9 p.m. AT.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say the driver failed to stop and left the area, but later called to say he was involved in a crash.

A section of the highway was closed for several hours overnight while a collision reconstructionist attended the scene. It has since reopened.
The investigation is ongoing.
