Charlotte-Mecklenburg police have identified the pedestrian killed late Saturday on the 1500 block of Providence Road as David Eugene Flowers, 41.
The incident occurred at 11:40 p.m. Saturday when Flowers was struck by a Volvo driven by George Pexos, who was traveling north on Providence Road. Flowers was attempting to cross Providence and stepped off the curb directly into the path of the Volvo, police said.
Police said alcohol impairment is suspected.
Pexos applied the brakes but did not have enough time to avoid striking the pedestrian, officials said. Flowers was not in a crosswalk or at an intersection when he was struck.
