According to a press release, 77-year-old Larold Nyman was walking west across Main Street when he was struck by a white four-door sedan.

The driver, who remained on scene, was unable to see Mr. Nyman due to low light visibility.

The driver was interviewed and released at the scene. Officers did not detect any signs of impairment, and no charges have been filed.

During their investigation, officers learned that Mr. Nyman would regularly cross Main Street to use the laundry facilities at a nearby laundromat.
