Man killed trying to cross the street in Fort Collins

KUSA - A man has died after he was struck by a car while trying to cross the street in Fort Collins.

According to a release, the man was trying to cross Drake Rd at Canterbury Dr just before 6 p.m. Tuesday when he was hit by a car that did not have its headlights on.

The man was taken to a hospital, where he later died. His name will be released by the Larimer County Coroner’s Office after his family has been notified.

The car’s 18-year-old driver was treated at the scene for minor injuries.

The westbound lanes of Drake were closed between Raintree Dr and Constitution Ave for about four hours for the investigation. Police do not believe drugs, alcohol, or speed were factors.
