— Raleigh police Monday evening identified a man who died when two cars hit him while he was trying to cross Capital Boulevard near old Buffaloe Road.

The accident closed three lanes of traffic Monday morning.

Byron Reyes Rodriguez, 33, of 2013 Carthage Circle in Raleigh, was crossing outside a crosswalk when a northbound car in the far-left travel lane hit him, police said. The impact threw Rodriguez into the path of a second car that was in the northbound left-turn lane, and he was hit again, investigating officers said.

The accident happened about 9:30 a.m.

No charges were filed.
