86-year-old struck, killed by 86-year-old driver

On Saturday morning, an 86-year-old man was struck and killed by another 86-year-old man in an auto pedestrian accident.

Mission police said the fatal accident happened on the 500 block of North Bryan Road around 10 a.m.

The 86-year-old driver accidently hit the other elderly man as he was crossing the street.

The driver immediately stopped to render aid and call police.

The victim was taken to McAllen Medical Center, but died two hours later.

He is a native Mission man who lived near the scene of the accident.

Neighbors told Action 4 News the man was very active, and had a small red buggy filled with aluminum cans that he would push daily.

His name will not be released until next of kin is notified.

Authorities said the driver will probably not face charges, but the case is still under investigation.
