PHOENIX, AZ – Phoenix Police Department has released the identity of a pedestrian who was struck and killed just before 7:00 A.M. on Wednesday evening January 29th. The pedestrian was identified as 62-year old Robert L. Fayette of Phoenix. According to Phoenix Police Department, Fayette was crossing a marked crosswalk while pushing a wheelchair at the intersection of W Bell Road and N 23rd Avenue in front of the Midway Nissan dealership.
CCTV footage obtained from the accident shows that the signal changed while Fayette was crossing the street.

The driver of the Mercury Grand Marquis remained at the scene until authorities arrived. First responders arrived to find Fayette conscious and rushed him via ambulance to a nearby hospital where Fayette was pronounced dead shortly after arriving.
