Posted: Sunday, March 18, 2001

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- An Anchorage pedestrian died Saturday morning after he was struck by a car on a downtown street.

The man's name has not been released.

Police say the man was walking with two others at 7:50 a.m. when he tried to cross Sixth Avenue near C Street.

A car driven by Kathleen Thomson-Adams, 55, struck the man.

Police say she did not appear to be speeding and there were no obvious signs that she had consumed alcohol.

Thomson-Adams told police that the sun was in her eyes and it may have hindered her from seeing the man.

The man suffered massive head injuries and was pronounced dead at Alaska Regional Hospital.
