A man was killed Tuesday after he was hit by a vehicle in Northwest Baltimore, police said.
The 62-year-old man was standing in the median strip of the 3500 block of Park Heights Ave. just before 3:30 p.m. when he was struck by a passing vehicle, according to Detective Nicole Monroe, a Baltimore Police Department spokeswoman.
The man leaned forward as the vehicle passed and was struck in the head by a side mirror, she said.
He was pronounced dead at Sinai Hospital. His name will be released after his family is notified of his death.
The driver, who had a clean driving and vehicle record, stayed at the scene of the accident, Monroe said.
Initial findings point to pedestrian error as the cause of the accident, she said.
