A local man was killed when he was struck by a pickup truck while trying to cross Dublin Boulevard on foot on Monday morning, according to city police.

The victim, a 66-year-old man from Dublin, died at the scene near the Hansen Drive intersection. His identity has not yet been released publicly, with family notification still pending, according to Dublin police Capt. Nate Schmidt.

The fatal collision occurred at about 9:10 a.m. Monday when the 66-year-old man, who was crossing northbound across Dublin Boulevard near the Hansen Drive intersection, was hit by a Ford F-150 truck that was turning left onto eastbound Dublin Boulevard from Hansen Drive, according to Schmidt.
