A vehicle struck and killed a 72-year-old man Saturday night around the 3600 block of South Tryon Street, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police reported.
Fredger Allen Bratton died shortly before 10 p.m. when he was hit by a 2004 Nissan Altima driven by a 62-year-old woman.
It does not appear that speeding or alcohol contributed, police reported.
Bratton was not in a crosswalk or crossing at an intersection at the time of the wreck.
So far this year, at least 18 pedestrians have died on Charlotte streets, a total that is inching closer toward last years 24 pedestrian or bicyclist deaths.
Saturdays accident marked the second pedestrian fatality on South Tryon Street in 2012.
The other happened in March, near the intersection of Crescent Springs Drive, where a 21-year-old Central Piedmont Community College student was killed.
Data show there have been several pedestrian-involved wrecks near the intersection of South Tryon Street and Blairhill Road, where Bratton died. In November 2010, a 12-year-old boy suffered serious injuries after being hit there.
Police were still investigating Saturdays death. Anyone with information is asked to call CMPD at 704-432-2169.
