SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- A man has died after he was hit by a taxi cab in Scottsdale early Sunday morning, according to police.

The collision occurred before 1:30 a.m. on Scottsdale Road north of McDowell Road.

Scottsdale police spokesman Officer David Pubins said Kevin Mannion, 42, was leaving a restaurant and crossed Scottsdale Road from west to east. He was reportedly crossing in the middle of the block and not in a crosswalk when he was hit by the northbound cab.

Mannion was transported to Scottsdale Healthcare Osborn Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Police are investigating whether alcohol was a factor.

No citations have been issued, Pubins said.

Scottsdale Road was closed in the area until about 6 a.m. Sunday.
