GARDEN CITY A man jaywalking across Veterans Memorial Parkway late Friday was struck and killed by a motorist.
The motorist driving a Ford pickup was headed south at 10:16 p.m. when the man ran into the vehicle's path, according to Garden City police. The man, who had not been publicly identified by Saturday afternoon pending notification of next of kin, died at the scene.

The Ada County Coroner's Office said they will likely release the man's name Monday afternoon.
