A man who was struck by a car while crossing State Street in Sandy Thursday night is dead, having succumbed to injures sustained from the collision. The man, reported to be in his late 40's, was crossing with another man when a car heading northbound on the street struck him. He was rushed to a nearby hospital in extremely critical condition, where he later died.
The driver of the vehicle, an adult woman, immediately stopped after the impact and was cooperative with police. So far alcohol and drugs are not suspected to have played a role in the accident. The other pedestrian in the crosswalk escaped injury.
The name of the man killed has not been released pending notification of the family.
