A man died early Saturday morning after he was struck by a vehicle on the Marshall Avenue Bridge in St. Paul, according to the St. Paul Police Department.

Officers responded to a 911 call about a pedestrian struck by a vehicle on the bridge at 2:20 a.m., and arrived to find a man, believed to be in his mid-40s, laying in the middle of the road with severe head trauma, according to a statement from St. Paul Police Public Information Officer Steve Linders.

Officers spoke to a witness who saw the man who was struck walking in the middle of the roadway just prior to the crash,  according to Linders.

A 72-year-old man who was driving the vehicle that hit the man in the roadway remained at the scene and cooperated with investigators, Linders said.
