CINCINNATI — A man was killed, a second man seriously injured, following a hit-and-run pedestrian crash Friday night in Avondale, according to Cincinnati police.

Cincinnati police said the two men were hit by a driver in an unknown vehicle around 10:16 p.m. on 3400 Reading Road. The driver was heading north on Reading Road when they hit the two men crossing east in a marked crosswalk and then left the scene before officers arrived, according to Cincinnati police.

Both of the men were taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center. Cincinnati police said a 69-year-old man was pronounced dead at the hospital. The second man, a 31-year-old, suffered serious injuries.

Cincinnati police said the man's name is being withheld until family is notified.
