It happened about 10:30 p.m. along the 900 block of North Delaware Avenue, police said.

The man stepped off the curb and began running east across Delaware Avenue, toward The Roxxy nightclub, when a vehicle speeding north in the center lane hit him, according to investigators.

The driver did not stop, police said.

Medics pronounced the pedestrian dead at the scene shortly before 11 p.m. His identity was not immediately released, pending notification of his family members.

The striking vehicle is believed to be black or dark-colored, police said.
