A man was killed in Lewiston after a car struck him as he crossed the street on Thanksgiving Day.
A black Jeep traveling northbound struck the man in the 600 block of 21st Street at about 7:46 p.m., according to Lewiston Police.
The Lewiston Fire Department responded to provide medical treatment, but the man was pronounced dead at the scene.
He was not immediately identified by police, who were still working to notify family members on Thursday evening.
The driver of the vehicle involved in the collision remained at the scene, according to police. They do not believe alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash.
