A pedestrian died after he was hit by a car while trying to cross Roosevelt Boulevard late Thursday night.

Philadelphia police said the crash happened at the Boulevard and C Street in Feltonville at about 11:20 p.m.

The man was hit when he tried to cross at the intersection, police said.

The male driver of the 2013 Hyundai, which was in the northbound lanes and had the green light, remained at the scene, police said.

Authorities hadn't identified the victim as of early Friday morning.

The crash comes just more than a month after city officials announced that it would use a $2.5 million federal Department of Transportation grant to study how to make Roosevelt Boulevard safer. The busy highway is one of the most dangerous in the city for both pedestrians and drivers, and the grant is to fund a series of forums on how the crash-prone road can be improved.
