WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) — The Wichita Police Department said a 45-year-old man died after being hit by a car in south Wichita on Tuesday. It happened around 7:50 p.m. at the intersection of Seneca and Haskell.
The department said Kristopher Lacy of Wichita was crossing Seneca from east to west when he was struck by a man driving a Nissan Altima. Officers arrived and located Lacy, who was pronounced dead.
An investigation is still ongoing, but WPD says they don’t believe speed was a factor and that the driver was cooperating. There was no one else in the car when the crash occurred, according to police.
The department said it is the 37th fatality from collisions this year.
