Monroe County deputies have identified the pedestrian who died after being struck by a car in Pittsford Monday night. He is 26 year old Vaughn Steele of Penfield.
Deputies say Steele was found on the side of the road on East Avenue near Kilbourn road just before 7pm. A male called 911 about three hours later and told the dispatcher that he was the driver that struck Steele.
Steele was later pronounced dead at the hospital.
The driver told authorities he had hit what he thought was a garbage can.
No charges have been filed at this time and the investigation is continuing.
