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.

Following the passage of some scattered rainfall earlier this morning this afternoon turned out to be quite pleasant, albeit cooler overall. After peaking at 73° on Monday afternoon in Evansville, the River City reached just 68° earlier today - obviously a drop of just 5° isn't anything significant from day to day, but that difference signals the arrival of a cooling trend expected to last into the weekend ahead. As for the remainder of our Tuesday, expect our mainly cloudy skies to linger into the evening and overnight hours as temperatures gradually dwindle into the upper 40s for many of us.
