MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities have released the name of man who was struck and killed by at least one vehicle as he tried to cross a dark highway in a wheelchair.

Authorities list his address as that of Douglas Place, Inc., a drug and alcohol dependency treatment center in East Grand Forks.

Police are still investigating the accident.
