ST. PAUL (WCCO) – Police have identified the 59-year-old man who was struck and killed by a large truck while crossing a street in St. Paul.

It happened around 11:30 a.m. Thursday at Marion Street North and University Avenue.

Police say Benjamin Williams of Minneapolis was crossing Marion Street — and was not using the crosswalk — when he was hit by a truck.

Police say the truck driver had a green light and neither drugs nor alcohol appear to be a factor.

The man was brought to Regions Hospital and died a short time later.
