WALKER, Mich. (WZZM) -- An 84-year-old man was hit and killed by a passing vehicle Tuesday evening on Wilson Avenue.

The man, whose name has not been released pending notification of family, was struck just before 6 p.m. near the intersection of Wilson Avenue and Richmond Street, police at the scene confirmed. He was found in the roadway.

Authorities say the driver is a 19-year-old Walker resident.

Speed nor alcohol do not appear to be factors in the crash, police said. They added, however, that limited visibility at night might have played a role in the crash.
