PHOENIX -- A man has died after being struck by two vehicles while crossing a Valley street Friday night.

Police said the light was red when the man crossed the road near 16th Street and Greenway Parkway at around 10:30 p.m.

The first vehicle struck the man and sent him flying almost 80 yards. He was then hit by a second car.

The man was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, but he later died from his injuries.

Police said neither of the drivers was impaired, but they believe the man was drunk.
