Police say pedestrian killed on North Roxboro Street was 23-year-old Durham man

Durham police on Monday identified a man killed while trying to cross North Roxboro Street late Saturday night as Edgar Alvarez Castro, 23, of Durham.

Someone driving a 2010 Chrysler 300 northbound struck Alvarez Castro, as he ran eastbound across North Roxboro Street near Avondale Avenue, police said.

He was pronounced dead at the scene of the collision, which occurred shortly before midnight.

A preliminary investigation found neither excessive speed nor impairment appeared to factor into the collision, police said in a news release.

The driver, whose name was not released, will not be charged, police said Monday night.
