LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a 54-year-old man has died eight days after being struck by a car in Lincoln.

Police spokeswoman Angela Sands said Monday that Millard Wells wasn’t in a crosswalk when struck on Jan. 11. He died Friday.

Sands says the car driver, David Coakley, of Gothenburg, told officers he braked and tried to avoid hitting Wells but couldn’t. A police report says Coakley estimated his speed at 20 to 25 mph (32 to 40 kph).
