Boise police say it appears the 44-year-old man who died after being hit by a car on 36th Street in Boise Wednesday night was not in a crosswalk when he was hit.
Police say Kelly Summers was crossing 36th Street near the Anderson Street intersection around 7:30 p.m. when he was hit by a car going south on 36th Street.
Paramedics took Summers to a local hospital, where he died a few hours later, according to reports. Ada County coroner reports say Summers died from blunt force trauma to the head and chest as a result of being hit by the car. The manner of death is listed as accidental on coroner's reports.
Summers was well know to Boise police. He was given over 100 citations over the past few years for a variety of incidents of drinking alcohol in public, including dozens of tickets for open container, public intoxication, trespass, disorderly conduct, and failure to appear with many of those tickets being issued on the Boise Greenbelt, according to court records.
Police received numerous complaints from the public and business owners in the Downtown area about Summers being intoxicated and officers had almost daily contact with Summers when he wasn't in jail, officials said.
Coroner's reports do not say if they tested Summers for alcohol intoxication Thursday.
Police continue to investigate what happened. No charges had been filed in connection with the crash as of 11:30 a.m. Thursday.
