GRANITE CITY - An 80-year-old man was fatally injured when he was hit by a semi-tractor trailer Thursday afternoon in Granite City.

Police said the accident happened just before 3 p.m. at the intersection of Illinois Route 3 and West Chain of Rocks Road.

Witnesses said the man was walking on Route 3 and walked in front of the truck as it was stopped for a red light. They said the light changed and the truck proceeded into the intersection and struck the man.

The man was flown to St. Louis University Hospital where he was later pronounced dead. His name has not been released, pending notification of relatives.

The driver of the truck told police he did not see the pedestrian. There is no marked crosswalk at the intersection. Police said an investigation was continuing but charges were unlikely.
