Stackhouse was retrieving his mail from his mailbox and crossing the street to return to his home when he was struck, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

A 75-year-old woman driving the vehicle told police she was unable to avoid Stackhouse, police said.

The investigation is still pending, but no charges are expected, police said.
