FOREST PARK, OH (FOX19) -

Motorists stopped to give CPR to a 23-year-old man hit by a car in Forest Park late Wednesday, but he died at a hospital shortly after, police said.

Thursday afternoon, the Butler County Coroner's Office identified the victim as Jack Saylor of Cincinnati.

The incident appears to be accidental and remains under investigation, police said.

Officers responded to a report of a person struck by a vehicle on Hamilton Avenue near Crest Road during rainy, low visibility conditions just before 9 p.m., police said in a prepared statement.

When officers arrived, they found Saylor down in the road "that had been walking in the lane of travel," their statement reads.

Motorists stopped to render first aid and to try to resuscitate him with CPR until medics arrived on scene.

Saylor was transported to Mercy Hospital Fairfield "under CPR," according to police. 

He died at the hospital of multiple traumatic injuries, according to the coroner.
