CINCINNATI (WXIX) - One pedestrian died, and another is injured after a hit-skip accident happened on Reading Road Friday night.

According to police, the driver traveling north hit the pedestrians, who were crossing eastbound, around 10:30 p.m. in the 3400 block of Reading Road.

A 69-year-old pedestrian died while being taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center, officers said. The name of this individual is being withheld pending family notification.
