Police say a 45-year-old man died Wednesday night when he was struck by a car on New Bern Avenue.
The crash happened shortly after 9 p.m. Witnesses told police that Richard Lamar Caldwell was walking west and had just crossed the outbound lanes of New Bern Avenue between Millburnie Road and Shanda Drive.
Caldwell was crossing the inbound lanes on New Bern Avenue where he was struck by a 2000 Dodge passenger car driven by Jessika Mariya Lewis, 22.
Investigators said Caldwell was not in a crosswalk at the time of the collision.
Emergency workers transported Caldwell to nearby WakeMed, where he was pronounced dead, police reported.
Lewis was not injured. No charges have been filed, said police spokesman Jim Sughrue.
