Police: Man struck by vehicle, killed on N. Tryon


A man was killed after being struck by a car on North Tryon Street Wednesday night, according to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

On June 26th, just before 10:30 p.m., a man later identified as Darryle Gene Dendy, attempted to cross the road on the 4900 block of North Tryon Street after getting off a CATS bus at the bus stop near Bennett Street, officials said.

Dendy ran across the road and was struck by a 2013 Hyundai sedan traveling in the right southbound lane, and was thrown to the grassy shoulder of the road after the impact.

The driver of the Hyundai stopped the vehicle to report the crash.

Dendy was taken to Carolinas Medical Center with critical injuries.  He was pronounced deceased at the hospital at Thursday 3:58 a.m. 

Investigators say speed and alcohol use by the driver did not appear to be contributing factors in the crash, and that Dendy was not crossing in a pedestrian crosswalk or at an intersection. 

The collision is being investigated by the Major Crash Investigation Unit of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

 Anyone with information about this crash is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600 or the Major Crash Unit at 704-432-2169.
