PHOENIX -- A man who was using a walker while crossing a street in Phoenix Wednesday afternoon was fatally struck by an SUV.

It occurred at 19th and Turney avenues.

Phoenix police Sgt. Trent Crump said Gregory Regan, 58, apparently stopped to pick up an item he had dropped when he was struck by the southbound SUV.

Regan was taken a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

The adult female driver of the SUV remained at the scene and is cooperating with investigators, according to Crump.

Crump said there are no indications that speed or impairment were factors.

There was also a passenger inside the SUV.

The woman's name hasn't been released.
