The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department's Major Crash Investigation Unit is conducting an investigation into a motor vehicle collision involving a pedestrian that occurred on November 7, 2019.  The call for service came in at 7:58 p.m.

North Division Officers responded to reports of a pedestrian who was struck by a vehicle located near the 4400 block of Valeview Lane.  Members of the Charlotte Fire Department and MEDIC also responded to the scene.  When officers arrived, they located a male pedestrian in the roadway with life-threatening injuries.  The pedestrian was transported by MEDIC to Atrium Health's Carolinas Medical Center – Main.   

Officers with the Major Crash Investigation Unit, DWI Task Force, and Crime Scene Search were called to the scene to conduct an investigation.  The initial investigation indicates that a Hyundai Elantra was traveling north on Vailview Lane when it struck an adult male pedestrian who was walking in the roadway.  The driver of the Hyundai remained at the scene; he did not show signs of impairment and speed does not appear to be a contributing factor in this crash.  The pedestrian was wearing dark colored clothing.  In addition, it was raining at the time of the crash and the roadway at that location is not illuminated by street lights.  A female witness who was walking with the victim was not injured.  No charges have been filed against the driver of the Hyundai.

This case is being investigated by the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Departments Major Crash Investigation Unit.  Any witnesses to the crash are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600 or Detective Williams at 704-432-2169.  The public can also visit the Crime Stoppers mobile app website at http://charlottecrimestoppers.com/.
