SPOKANE, Wash - One man died Wednesday afternoon after being struck by a pickup near 57th and Regal. 

Deputies say witnesses told them that the man was on the north side of the 57th and ran south across the road when he was hit by a truck traveling eastbound. The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene. He has not been identified. 

Deputy Craig Chamberlin says the man was wearing dark clothing and was not in a crosswalk. Chamberlin also stated in a press release that it does not appear the driver of the truck was impaired. 

As soon as the scene is processed, detectives will release the body to the Spokane Medical Examiner, who will then conduct an autopsy and identify the man at a later time. 

As soon as any additional information is released, we will update this story.
