PHOENIX (AP) — Phoenix police are investigating the death of a pedestrian who was hit by a car while crossing a street northeast of the airport.
Police said Saturday the victim died from injuries suffered in the accident just before 10 p.m. Friday.
He was identified as 61-year-old Vernon Crawford.
Police say Crawford was crossing Washington Street in the middle of the block near 4300 east when he was hit by a westbound Kia Forte.
