LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Lawrence police say a pedestrian who died when he was hit by a car was a longtime employee of the University of Kansas Libraries.

Police say 58-year-old Bruce Coburn of Lawrence was hit by a car Friday as he walked along a street. Coburn was an office assistant with the libraries since 1981. He died at the scene.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports no citations or arrests have been made against the 26-year-old man who was driving the car.

In a statement released Monday, Kansas Chancellor Bernadette Gray-Little said Coburn’s work over three decades helped keep the university community connected. She extended condolences to Coburn’s family, friends and university employees who knew him.
