A Hillsboro pedestrian was fatally struck by a vehicle and killed Saturday night.

According to the Wilmington Post of the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Douglas L. Goodrich, 56, of Hillsboro, was walking in the crosswalk on North High Street at North Street near UDF at 10:50 p.m. when he was struck by a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 driven by Bryce A. Young, 20, of Hillsboro, who was northbound on North High Street.

Goodrich was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Highland County Coroner’s Office, according to the state patrol.

A state patrol spokesperson said Monday that while Goodrich was in the crosswalk, investigators have found nothing to charge Young with at this time. The spokesperson said that could change as the investigation proceeds, but at the current time nothing has been found to determine that Young was negligent.

The Paint Creek Joint EMS/Fire District, Hillsboro Police Department and Highland County Sheriff’s Office also responded to the scene.

Alcohol or drug use are unknown at this time, according to the state patrol.

The crash remains under investigation by the state patrol.
