NORTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) - A man has died after being struck by a vehicle while trying to cross Route 1 in North Kingstown.

North Kingstown Police Capt. Paul Barry said Thursday that 52-year-old Peter Munroe was pronounced dead after being rushed to Rhode Island Hospital with severe injuries on Wednesday evening.

Munroe had just left a nearby supermarket where he worked when he attempted to cross the four-lane Post Road, also known as Route 1. He was hit by a vehicle traveling in the right northbound lane at about 5:20 p.m. Wednesday.

Barry says the driver told police he didn’t see Munroe, who might have been walking to a bus stop.

Police are still investigating what happened.

Barry says there are no criminal charges pending against the driver, 56-year-old East Greenwich resident Edmund Casey.
