A man who was hit by a car while crossing Falls of Neuse Road late Thursday night has died.
Bhim Bahadur Limbu, 53, was in a crosswalk at the intersection of Spring Forest Road at about 12:40 a.m. when he was hit by a Honda going southbound on Falls of Neuse, according to a police report. The driver of the Honda, Arthur Shandale Best of Raleigh, had a green light and was going 45 mph, the speed limit, when he hit Limbu.
The accident report notes that light rain was falling and the pavement was wet, though Best did not brake before hitting Limbu, who died later at WakeMed. Police have not cited Best, but a spokesman indicated Friday that the investigation is not over.
Limbu lived in an apartment on Suburban Drive, off Sandy Forks Road.
