A police report of the accident said Michael Steven Britt Jr., 26, of Noble Creek Lane in Raleigh was driving a Honda sedan south when King began to run at an angle across the road from Filbin Creek Drive.
Britt could not stop in time when King ran in front of the car, police said.
Perry Creek Road was closed for about two hours while accident investigators worked at the scene.
