SYMMES TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

A 62-year-old pedestrian from New Jersey was struck and killed by a vehicle on Fields Ertel Road near Waterstone Boulevard Sunday night, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

AirCare was called, but the victim, Maheshchandra Trivedi of Branchburg, New Jersey, was pronounced dead at the scene of the 6:40 p.m. crash, sheriff's officials said.

A preliminary investigation determined a 2012 Chevrolet Cruze was traveling east on Fields Ertel Road approaching Waterstone Boulevard when Trivedi ran across the road from north to south toward a Kohls store. The Chevrolet struck him.

The driver of the Chevrolet was wearing a seat belt and was not hurt, sheriff's officials said.

Alcohol and drugs are not factors in the crash, which remains under investigation.
