ASHEVILLE — Police say a pedestrian has been killed after being hit while walking on a sidewalk in Asheville.

Investigators said the crash happened around 12:15 p.m. today on Kimberly Avenue, a tree-lined street in north Asheville with sidewalks on both sides of the road.

Police aren’t releasing any information about the person killed, the driver of the vehicle or how it ended up on the sidewalk.

Authorities say the crash is under investigation and no charges have been filed.


Is Asheville near Elizabeth City?

Asheville is about 8 hours away from E.C. So why is this in the Daily Advance?

Far out "bad" news?

The only reason that news from afar would be news here is because the local muggings, thefts, killings, shooting, drug dealings, etc, are the only things newsworthy. So if we see something ghastly outside of our realm, then maybe we will think here isn't so bad!
