GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greensboro city officials said a pedestrian had been hit, causing streets to close Thursday night.

The pedestrian has been identified as John Morton Gillikin, 46, of Greensboro.

Authorities said a 1998 Honda driven by Emmanuel Lewis Roscoe, 19, of Greensboro, struck a pedestrian around 9:30 p.m. on McCormick Street, sending Gillikin to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

McCormick Street between Oak and Grove streets and Marion Street between Portland Street and Glenwood Avenue were closed for a period last night but have since reopened.

The incident was not Halloween-related and did not involve a trick-or-treater, officials said. The driver reportedly stopped after the incident.

The collision is under investigation.
