Pedestrian Struck/Killed In Fayette County

A pedestrian is dead after being struck by a vehicle in a parking lot Tuesday evening in Northeast Iowa.

The Iowa State Patrol says the incident occurred in the 100 block of 1st Street Southwest in Oelwein shortly before 6 p.m. A 2014 Ford Explorer was pulling out of its parking space when it hit a 54-year-old Oelwein resident who was crouched down in front of the vehicle, apparently out of the driver’s view.

The name of the victim has not been released pending notification of family and the driver of the SUV has not been identified. The Oelwein Police Department assisted at the scene and the accident remains under investigation.
