A 62-year-old man, Ahilefs Kalaitzi, was struck by a car and killed in a pedestrian accident on June 1 in Evesham Township, NJ. This was the township’s third pedestrian fatality this year.

According to this article in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Kalaitzi was walking south on the shoulder of N. Elwood Road, near his home, when he was hit by a northbound car driven by 19-year-old Anthony Schepis III.

Kalaitzi was pronounced dead at Virtua Marlton Hospital. The driver, Schepis only suffered minor injuries.

According to the article, the incident remains under investigation.
