FOREST GROVE, OR (KPTV) -

A 55-year-old man in a wheelchair was struck and killed in a crash on a Forest Grove street Monday morning.

Forest Grove police said John Hacker was trying to cross Pacific Avenue from the south side of the highway to the north side.

A witness said Hacker made it across the eastbound lanes, but was struck by a SUV heading westbound. It was still dark at the time of the crash and he was wearing dark clothing.

He was not in a marked crosswalk or pedestrian crossing area.

Police said the SUV driver stayed at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation.

It does not appear alcohol, drugs or speed were a factor in this crash, according to police.
