Pedestrian struck and killed in Kill Devil Hills

A West Virginia man was struck and killed this morning, June 3, as he crossed the road near Lowe’s in Kill Devil Hills. The investigation determined that a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado operated by a 90-year-old Point Harbor man had turned left (north) from W. Landing Drive onto US 158 and struck the 82-year-old man.

The pedestrian was using the crosswalk and had the right of way. A friend walking with him attempted to pull him out of the path of the oncoming Silverado, but was unable to move him in time. The deceased was visiting from Weirton, West Virginia.

Officers were dispatched to the accident scene at 9:04 a.m. The emergency response and investigation required the shutdown of US 158 for approximately one hour. Kill Devil Hills Fire Department, Dare County EMS and the Dare County Sheriff’s Office responded to this incident. Names are being withheld pending notification of family members.

A Kill Devil Hills Police Department release stated, “We all share the responsibility to make sure our roads are safe for everyone. In the aftermath of this tragedy, we would encourage people to visit www.watchformenc.org to learn more about how they can be a safer driver, bicyclist, and pedestrian, and ultimately, reduce the number of people hit or killed by vehicles on North Carolina streets and highways.”
