A man crossing a street in Northeast Baltimore was struck and killed by a pickup Wednesday evening, police said.

Baltimore resident Joice Price, 82, was using his wheelchair to cross the 5500 block of Bel Air Road about 6:15 p.m. when he was struck by a Dodge Dakota, said police spokesman Detective Jeremy Silbert.

Price was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital where he died later that evening, Silbert said. The driver of the truck that hit Price stayed on the scene, he said.

No charges have been filed against the driver. The police investigation of the accident remains open, Silbert said.
