Pedestrian killed in northeastern Colorado Springs crash


A pedestrian was killed in a crash on Academy Boulevard in northern Colorado Springs Thursday evening, according to police. 

The crash happened around 7:15 p.m. on Academy Boulevard just north of Austin Bluffs Parkway. Police said an SUV was headed northbound when it hit a pedestrian who was walking eastbound. He died on the scene. His name has not yet been released. 

Police said the pedestrian was not in a crosswalk and was not near an intersection when he was hit. 

The driver of the SUV was not injured. Police said the driver was not impaired, and speed was not a factor in the crash.
