OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A 62-year-old Omaha man was killed when a car struck him while he was crossing the street, authorities say.

Police say Cecil Redden died from the injuries he sustained just before 6 p.m. Saturday.

Redden was crossing the street in the middle of a block when a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado struck him. He was taken to a local hospital and later pronounced dead.

Authorities say Redden was not in a designated crosswalk, and speed and alcohol were not considered factors in the crash. The driver was identified as 58-year-old William Minturn, also of Omaha.
