A 70-year-old pedestrian was killed in Ashkelon on Monday when he was hit by a truck while crossing the street.

Initial police investigations have determined that the man was not in a crosswalk when he tried to cross Ben-Gurion street and was hit by the approaching truck, which sent him flying some seven meters through the air.

Paramedics were called to the scene where they found the man unconscious with serious injuries across his entire body. Rescue personnel tried to revive the man before rushing him to the city's Barzilai Hospital, where he was ruled dead.
