CLEVELAND — A 66-year-old man was struck and killed by a car after police say he failed to look before crossing Kinsman Road on Cleveland’s East Side Tuesday, according to the Cleveland Division of Police.

On Thursday morning, the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's office identified the man as Willie James Glover, of Cleveland.

Officers responded at approximately 11:03 p.m. Tuesday to the area of East 93rd Street and Kinsman Road.

Glover was walking southbound on Kinsman Road near East 93rd Street when he walked into the westbound lane of traffic and walked up to an RTA bus.

Glover attempted to enter the bus but was denied for reasons not released by police.

Then without looking, he crossed the street and was struck by a 2021 Kia Forte driven by a 21-year-old male, police said.

He was transported to MetroHealth Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

His identity has not yet been released.
