A 73-year-old man is dead after he was hit by a car while crossing the street in Baltimore. 

Preliminary investigations by police show that a 2011 Nissan was traveling Eastbound on the 2900 block of Edmondson Ave, but as they entered the intersection at Popular Grove they hit a man in a wheelchair.

The driver did wait at the scene for police.  

When officers got to the scene, the man in the wheelchair, Percey Eberhart, was alert and talking. He was taken to the hospital in good condition, but he suddenly stopped talking and lost consciousness around 1:40 p.m. 

Doctors declared Eberhart dead shortly after. 

Crash Team Detectives are investigating the incident.
