Police released more details Friday night about a pedestrian killed in southeast Calgary earlier in the day.
They said a 66-year-old man was standing on the median to cross the street at McIvor Boulevard when he was hit by a Pontiac Grand Am just after 11 a.m.
According to police, a Toyota Camry was heading west on McIvor Boulevard and tried to turn onto 52 Street S.E. at the same time that the Grand Am was heading east on McIvor.
They said when the driver of the Camry went to make the turn, it hit the driver’s side of the Grand Am which caused the car to lose control.
The Grand Am ended up hitting the pedestrian who was waiting at a concrete island.
EMS said the man succumbed to his injuries.
The drivers of both of the vehicles involved were not seriously injured.
Police said alcohol isn’t considered to be a factor but officers are investigating if excessive speed may have contributed to the crash.
