WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A Connecticut man that was killed Tuesday night on Market Street was apparently leaving a nearby store.
Police said a minivan hit a man in his 50s walking and trying to cross Market Street near the Budgetel Inn around 7 p.m. He died at the scene.
Witnesses said they saw the victim standing in the median right before the accident near 4903 Market Street. Police said the pouring rain might have been a factor in the accident. Two lanes of Market Street were closed because of the accident, but police said they are back to normal now.
Police say the victim is from Connecticut, but they have not released his name as they try to notify his family.
