Lee County coroner’s officials have identified a pedestrian who died after being hit by an SUV.

Coroner Bill Harris says 42-year-old Anthony Shane Hurst was hit on Waverly Parkway in Opelika Saturday night and was later pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Harris says it appears that Hurst was trying to cross the highway when he was hit. Harris says charges are not expected to be filed and alcohol doesn’t appear to be a factor in the crash.

Harris says Opelika Police and the Lee County Coroner’s Office are investigating the crash.
