The accident happened east of Reber Street, not far from Taft Furniture.
52-year-old Rosanne Endres of Rensselaer was the person that hit Irwin. He was crossing Central Avenue, but he was wearing dark clothing, making it difficult to see him. He was also not crossing in a crosswalk. Because of those circumstances, Endres will likely not be facing any charges.
