DENVER (AP) - Police say an elderly man in an electric wheelchair was hit and killed by an SUV in Lakewood.

The Denver Post reports (https://goo.gl/gxtAwU ) 79-year-old Stephen Tinoco, of Lakewood, was headed west in the eastbound lane when he was hit Friday morning. Investigators say the teen driver couldn’t see the man because she was headed into the glaring sun.

Tinoco died at the scene.
