A pedestrian was hit and killed by a vehicle on U.S. Highway 1 in Cary early Sunday.
Police said Alexander Scott Blanchard, 18, of Cary, died at the scene on U.S. 1 between Cary Parkway and Tryon Road.
Police said they “began receiving calls stating a man was walking in the driving lanes of US 1 northbound” at about 3 a.m., according to a Sunday afternoon press release.
Just before 3:15 a.m., police said, a woman in a Buick SUV called to say she hit a man who was walking in the road.
The driver of the vehicle that hit the man had three passengers and all four were taken to a hospital as a precaution. Police said the driver had non-life-threatening injuries.
U.S. 1 was closed for several hours Sunday morning as police investigated the crash scene.
No charges have been files as of Sunday afternoon.
