CARY, N.C. — Cary authorities are trying to identify a man who was killed Tuesday morning after being hit by a driver on Tryon Road.

The unidentified man was crossing Tryon at the intersection with Piney Plains Road at about 6:45 a.m. He was transported to WakeMed, where he was pronounced dead.

He was not carrying any identification and a canvass of the area produced few leads in establishing his identity, authorities said.

The victim, a black man about 18 to 20 years old, had a thin beard and was wearing a dark sweatshirt with blue jeans, investigators said. He was about 6 feet tall.

The driver, a 29-year-old woman from Raleigh, was moving through the intersection on a green light, and police said she likely did not see the man because of the dark conditions and his dark clothing.

Police have not filed any charges. The case remains under investigation.

Anyone with information on the victim's identity should call the Town of Cary’s Traffic Safety Team at 919 469-4338.
