LAKEWOOD, Colo. — A man was killed after being hit by a vehicle driven by a pizza delivery man while crossing a busy street on Sunday night, the Lakewood Police Department said.

The crash happened about 7:20 p.m. on West Alameda Avenue and Benton Street, one block west of South Sheridan Boulevard, police said.

The driver of the silver Ford Focus stayed at the scene, police said. The pedestrian, 25, was pronounced dead at the scene.
