Police say a 73-year-old Rhode Island man died over the weekend after he was struck by a car while crossing the street in Providence. 

Lt. Richard Fernandes says a motorist collided with the unidentified victim around 2:30 p.m. Sunday while he was crossing Allens Avenue near Swan Street. 

The impact sent the man airborne and he landed in the northbound lane. The victim was rushed to Rhode Island Hospital, where he later died. 

Investigators say the victim worked near the scene of the crash and was known to walk in the area often. 

Police say the driver, whose identity is being withheld, remained at the scene and no charges have been filed as of Sunday night. 

An investigation is ongoing.
