One man is dead after deputies say he was hit by a vehicle Saturday night.

The Daviess County Sheriff's Office says crews responded to the intersection of Fairview Drive and Mallard Landing Loop just before 9 p.m.

Authorities say a 74-year-old man was attempting to cross, when he walked into the path of an oncoming vehicle.

We're told the man was taken to the hospital where he later died.

The Sheriff's Office says alcohol is not believed to be a factor on the driver and toxicology results are pending on the pedestrian.

The identification of the pedestrian will be released by the Daviess County Coroner's Office once the family is notified.
