Tulsa, Okla. —

Non-working street lights may have played a role in a deadly collision Tuesday night in Tulsa.

The incident happened around 7:28 p.m., near 21st and Sheridan.

Witnesses told officers a 75-year-old man tried to cross the street and was hit by an oncoming vehicle. 

"The witnesses told officers that the pedestrian appeared to hurry in an attempt to make it across the street before the vehicle arrived," police said.  "However, the pedestrian was struck near the middle of the four lane roadway which resulted in serious leg, neck and head injuries."

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the young driver didn't appear to be speeding and he was turned over to his parents. 

People in the area tell us the lights at 21st have been out for a long time, so it's dark and dangerous in that area.

So far, no names have been released.
