Police have arrested one of the drivers involved in the two-car collision that killed a pedestrian on Sunday afternoon.
Witnesses say two cars were heading south at 128th Street at Frederick Douglass Boulevard when they collided and struck a pedestrian just before 2 p.m.
“I saw the black Honda come into contact with the Infiniti and the guy went up on the Infinity,” Dameon Jones, an eyewitness, told PIX11 News. “He was on a push scooter.”
Police say the vehicle was a Hyundai, and was traveling south in a northbound lane and did not stop at a red light, colliding with an Infiniti making a left turn onto Frederick Douglass Boulevard.
After colliding with the Infiniti, the Hyundai struck the pedestrian, Cleo Fields, 65. He was thrown in the air and landed on a parked car that was also struck by the Hyundai.
The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Hyundai, a 60-year-old man, was arrested. Charges are pending.
“His leg was twisted one way, his body the other way,” John Smith, an eyewitness, told PIX11 News. “He died on impact.”
