A 58-year-old Gary man died after being hit by a car Sunday evening in northwest Indiana.

Williams Tee Ervin was struck about 6:10 p.m. in the 600 block of West 35th Avenue in Gary, according to the Lake County coroner’s office.

The 23-year-old driver of a Chevy Malibu told investigators he didn’t see the pedestrian “until it was too late,” police said.

Ervin was outside of a crosswalk when he was hit, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver was cooperative with investigators, according to police, who didn’t say citations or charges were filed.

Ervin is the second pedestrian to be hit and killed by a vehicle this month in Gary.

On Jan. 5, Brenda Doby, 71, was fatally struck by two vehicles while crossing the street in the 1400 block of Broadway Avenue.
