ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A St. Paul man who was crossing a street in a crosswalk has died after he was struck by a minivan.

St. Paul police say 82-year-old Roger Charles Solheid was crossing the street Friday afternoon when he was struck by a van driven by a 63-year-old Richfield man. Solheid was taken to a hospital, where he died.

Police spokesman Howie Padilla says the driver is cooperating with the investigation and wasn't in custody as of Saturday morning. A police news release says the case has not been presented to the Ramsey County Attorney's Office.
