A 61-year-old man was killed Monday night crossing South Claiborne Avenue, New Orleans police said.
Wayne Hickman, of New Orleans, was crossing Claiborne at Gen. Taylor Street about 7:19 p.m. when a Chevrolet Impala hit him.
Hickman died on the scene, said John Gagliano, the Orleans Parish coroner’s chief investigator. An autopsy will determine how he died.
The 17-year-old driver of the Impala was not injured. No charges have been filed, said officer Garry Flot, a Police Department spokesman.
Blood and alcohol tests are pending.
Fatality investigator Anthony Pontiff is in charge of the investigation.
