EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (KMOX) –  A man is dead after he was struck by a car in East St. Louis late Thursday night.

State police have determined the victim’s identity and say he’s a 49-year-old East St. Louis resident, but they’re withholding his name pending family notification.

The man was standing in the middle of St. Clair Avenue when he was hit by a pick-up truck around 10 pm.

The driver, an out-of-state man, initially left the scene but later returned and told police he initially believed that he had struck a deer.
