SYLVANIA TOWNSHIP, OH (Toledo News Now) - The Ohio State Highway Patrol Toledo Post is currently investigating a fatal crash in which a pedestrian was hit by a car on Central Avenue Tuesday morning.
Kristine M. Chudey, 22, of Oregon, was driving her Honda Accord eastbound on Central Avenue in the left lane around 6:30 Tuesday morning and struck Donald H. Pack, 83, of Toledo, who was walking southbound across Central and entered the eastbound left lane.
Pack, who was wearing dark clothing and a red safety light, was struck and thrown onto the pavement. He was treated and transported to a Toledo hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Chudey, who was wearing her seatbelt, was not injured and declined treatment.
Alcohol and drug use do not appear to be a factor in the crash, however, reduced visibility from moderate rain combined with dark clothing contributed to the crash.
Eastbound Central Avenue was closed for about an hour.
