The accident happened prior to 11 p.m. Saturday, Barnes said. The pedestrian was crossing mid-block and not in a crosswalk at an intersection.

The driver and vehicle that hit the pedestrian were not identified, and Barnes said preliminary information gathered by the department’s investigators suggests the driver may not be at fault for the pedestrian’s fatal collision. The driver stayed on scene and has not been cited or arrested at this time.
