CINCINNATI (FOX19) -

A 31-year-old man who was hit while walking on northbound Interstate 75 at the Brent Spence Bridge earlier this week has died.

Russel Hamer was pronounced dead Tuesday at University of Cincinnati Medical Center, according to the Hamilton County Coroner's Office.

A passing 2009 Infiniti G37 struck him as he crossed the highway from east to west just before 10 a.m. Aug. 30, Cincinnati police have said.

The driver stopped and talked with police. He was not hurt or charged.

Excessive speed is not a factor, police have said.

The case remains under investigation.
