First responders were unable to save the man after officials say he was hit by an oncoming car as he was crossing Broad Street.
So far, there is no description of the vehicle.
This is when police say witnesses and surveillance videos become important.
“That’s very disturbing. Especially as I get ready to open for patients to come in this morning, so that’s very disheartening,” one woman said.

Police hoping for a lead that will help them catch the suspect in this latest tragedy.
