DOVER, Del. (AP) — Police in Delaware say a man has died after he was struck by a car while attempting to cross a street to get to a funeral home.

Police say 51-year-old Bruce Johnson of Goldsboro, Maryland, was hit by a Jeep on Friday evening while trying to get to the Bennie Smith Funeral Home in Dover. Police say he was taken to the Bayhealth Medical Center where he died of his injuries.

Police say Johnson was not in a crosswalk when he was hit.
