KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City police tell FOX 4 that the pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle near Meyer and Troost Friday morning has died from his injuries.

The pedestrian was a man, who police say stepped off the curb and was hit by a car.

“We’ve identified our victim as a 60-year-old male. What we know is he was standing on the west curb of Troost, just a little bit north of Meyer, reportedly stepped off the curb in the path of a vehicle that was headed southbound. Driver of that vehicle struck him. He sustained very critical injuries and died later,” said Sgt. Bill Mahoney, KCMO police accident investigator.

On Monday, the victim was identified as Richard Marcrum, 60, of Kansas City, Mo.

The driver of the car tried to help the Marcrum.
