ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. – Authorities released the name of a 57-year-old pedestrian who was struck and killed Wednesday night on Mayport road.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Glen Keith Waddle of Jacksonville was crossing against the pedestrian crosswalk symbol at the intersection of Mayport and Levy Road around 9:26 p.m. when he was hit by a 2004 Nissan Maxima.

The driver of the Maxima was headed southbound on Mayport Rd. and was unable to see Waddle crossing the road because of his dark clothing.

Troopers say Waddle was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver had no injuries.

Authorities are looking into whether speed, alcohol or drugs were factors. Charges are pending.
