Man, 83, struck and killed while crossing street in Glendale

An 83-year-old man was killed Monday after he was struck by a vehicle at an unmarked crosswalk in central Glendale, police said.

The man, who officials did not immediately identify, was taken to Glendale Adventist Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, Glendale Police Sgt. Tom Lorenz said.

He was walking about 4:10 p.m. in an unmarked crosswalk at Broadway and Maynard Street, Lorenz said. The motorist, who was driving west on Broadway, failed to yield and struck him, Lorenz added.

The 40-year-old motorist, whose identity could not immediately be verified, remained at the scene.

The man’s death is the first pedestrian fatality in Glendale this year, according the Police Department records.
