CONCORD, N.C. (WBTV) - A man was hit by a car and killed while crossing a road in Concord last week.
According to the Concord Police Department, the incident happened near Branchview Drive NE at Cabarrus Avenue E on Thursday, Sept. 5 around 7 a.m.
Police say a full-size SUV struck Melvin Caldwell as he attempted to cross the road and as a result of his injuries, Caldwell died at the scene.
Investigators say the incident failed to meet the criteria for a charge of a misdemeanor death by vehicle and it was determined that speed was not a factor.
However, the driver has been cited by Concord Police for no operators license.
“The Concord Police Department again offers their condolences to the family of Mr. Caldwell,” a press release read.
