A preliminary investigation into this morning's crash on Northeast Marine Drive found that the pedestrian, a 31-year-old male, was seen staggering westbound on the North side of Marine Drive prior to the crash.

Investigators believe that the pedestrian laid down on the edge of the road and was then struck by a westbound 2013 Subaru Outback, driven by 22-year-old Dellstan Fillmore.

Fillmore remained at the scene and was cooperative with investigators. Preliminary information indicates that Fillmore was not under the influence of intoxicants.

Investigators believe that alcohol may have been a factor in the pedestrian's actions.

No citations have been issued and the case remains under investigation.

The pedestrian's name will be released upon family notification from the hospital.
