Pedestrian hit and killed by vehicle

(WMC-TV) - A man was hit and killed by a car while walking across Summer Avenue Thursday.

Police said the man was struck and killed just after 7:00 p.m. as he crossed the busy street.

A nearby car lot owner said the victim tried to cross when oncoming traffic had a green light.

"Heard a loud thump and thought somebody hit a car," said witness Danny Bugg.  "Saw the victim in the street and ran over to him.  He didn't have a pulse, killed him instantly."

A black Honda appeared to be the car that struck the pedestrian.  Witnesses said the young man behind the wheel was extremely upset.

No one has been identified as police continue their investigation.
