HAZELWOOD, Mo. – A 67-year-old man was hit and killed by a car while crossing a street in Hazelwood Wednesday morning.
Officers responded to the 5900 block of Howdershell Road at 8:50 a.m. Witnesses said the man was hit while crossing the street in front of the Quik Trip at 5909 Howdershell.
The man was unconscious with shallow breathing when officers arrived. He later died at a nearby hospital. He was identified Wednesday afternoon as Wilbur Wells of St. Louis.
