CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Police believe a pedestrian was under the influence of alcohol when he was hit and killed by a car on Providence Road Saturday night.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said the man, later identified as 41-year-old David Eugene Flowers, was trying to cross Providence Road near Queens University at 11:40 p.m.

Officers said Flowers stepped off the curb, directly into the path of a Volvo. He was pronounced dead on scene. We're told Flowers was not in a crosswalk. 

Police said the 21-year-old driver tried to brake, but not in enough time to avoid the collision. 

This is an ongoing investigation. If you saw anything, call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600 or CMPD's Major Crash Investigation Unit at 704-432-2169.

    Asheville residents often see bears. The mountains’ largest city is the focus of a five-year study of urban bears that pass through or live in and around the town. Residents have reason to be wary around animals that can reach 500 pounds, sport inch-long claws and sprint at 35 mph, but they’re also mostly tolerant of them. Because no hunting is allowed, the city serves as a bear sanctuary.
