ALBANY - The pedestrian killed in this week after being struck by a car in Albany was identified by police Thursday as a Schenectady man.
Curtis Carnegie, 50, was killed at about 7:15 p.m. Tuesday when he was struck on Washington Avenue Extension, just west of Fuller Road, police said.
Police arrived to find Carnegie lying in the roadway with serious injuries. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the vehicle stopped immediately and has been cooperative in the investigation, police said in a release issued after the incident.
The preliminary investigation indicated that it appeared Carnegie was attempting to walk south, across Washington Avenue Extension, when he stepped into the westbound lane and was struck by the vehicle.
The crash remained under investigation, according to the department's earlier release. A spokesman Thursday offered no updates beyond the identity of the pedestrian.
