CHICOPEE, MA (WSHM) -

Police told CBS 3 that a 78-year-old man died Saturday night after being struck by an SUV.

It happened around 6:30 p.m.

Police said the man was crossing Grattan Street, near the Lucky Strike restaurant, but he was not in a crosswalk.

They said speed does not appear to be a factor; however, there may have been poor visibility due to the weather.

As of now, there are no charges against the driver, who police believe was in his mid-20s.

The crash remains under investigation.
