A Charlotte man trying to cross Central Avenue late Saturday was hit and killed by a van traveling outbound in the 3100 block.
Chandra Phuyel, 27, was attempting to cross Central just before midnight when he walked into the path of a Honda Odyssey driven by 40-year-old Nga Phan, Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said.
Medic responded, but Phuyel died on the scene.
Phan was uninjured. The crash is under investigation by CMPD's Major Crash Investigation Unit. Witnesses should call Detective Kevin Allred at 704-336-8862.
First my sincerest condolences to the family of Chandra Phyyel and prayers for Nga Phan.
Chandra Phyel? Nga Phan?
20 years ago it would have been Larry Smith hit and killed Ben Williams. What the hell happened to East Charlotte?
