SEAFORD, Del. (AP) - Authorities have identified a 73-year-old man killed over the weekend after he was struck by a car while crossing the road in Seaford.

Delaware State Police say in a news release that Fred L. Savage died Saturday night.

Police spokesman Master Cpl. Jeffrey Hale says Savage tried to cross Concord Pond Road near Orange Blossom Lane when he stepped into the path of a vehicle.

Police say Savage was wearing dark clothing and wasn’t carrying a light.

Hale says the motorist tried to avoid hitting Savage but was unsuccessful. Savage was treated at the scene by paramedics and taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police say alcohol use on the part of Savage may have played a role in the crash.
