SEATTLE (AP) — An 88-year-old man has died after being hit by a dump truck as he walked in Seattle.

Police say the man was in an intersection Tuesday afternoon when he was hit by a 2007 Kenworth dump truck.

KOMO-TV reports he was taken to Harborview Medical Center, where he died a short time later. He was not immediately identified.

Officers reportedly checked the 38-year-old truck driver for signs of drug or alcohol impairment but didn’t find any.

Traffic detectives are investigating.
