SCOTTSDALE, AZ - Police say a 45-year-old man has died after being struck by a cab in Scottsdale.
Officer David Pubins says the man had left a nearby restaurant before 1:30 a.m. Sunday and walked across Scottsdale Road.
Pubins says the victim was crossing in the middle of a road, not a crosswalk, when the driver of a Yellow Cab going northbound hit him.
Authorities say the man was taken to Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn, where he succumbed to his injuries.
Investigators have not issued any citations and say it is too early to tell if alcohol was a factor.
The victim has been identified by his employer as Kevin Mannion.
Mannion worked as Program Director for Wickenburg radio station KSWG and on its website Sunday night was a message that stated:
Our 96.3 Real Country family lost a great guy this morning. Kevin Mannion our Program Director was killed early this morning in Scottsdale. We pray for his family and friends. Kevin will be greatly missed, here at the radio station.
Mannion previously worked for KNIX in Phoenix.
