71-year-old man hit, killed by SUV in Marion

MARION, Ind. (WISH) — A 71-year-old man died Saturday night after he was struck by a sport-utility vehicle in Marion.

Greer unresponsive. Officers and emergency medical professionals administered CPR, and Greer was taken to an area hospital, where he later died.

A 2002 Chevy Trailblazer driven by 36-year-old Mannette L. Williams, of Indianapolis, was traveling south on Western when she hit Greer, who was standing in the roadway. Williams told police she had not seen him in the road.

Witnesses told police the traffic light for southbound traffic on Western was green when the accident happened, and Greer was not crossing at a crosswalk.
