Pedestrian hit by car near LSU early Monday

A man walking across Nicholson Drive just south of LSU was taken to the hospital with life threatening injuries early Monday morning and later died after apparently being hit by a moving car, reported Cpl. Don Coppola with the Baton Rouge Police Department.

EMS took Carrei Johnson, 65, of 4915 Alvin Dark Ave., to the hospital where he later died from his injuries. The accident, which occurred about 1:23 a.m. Monday near where Nicholson intersects Bob Petit Blvd., is still being investigated, Coppola said.
