GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Harrison County Deputy Coroner Brian Switzer has identified the pedestrian hit and killed Monday night in Gulfport. He is hoping by releasing the identity, someone will be able to locate the man’s family.

Switzer said Douglas Mack, 53, died at Memorial Hospital after he was hit by a vehicle at the corner of Pass Rd. and Ford St.

Switzer said the coroner’s office has not been able to locate Mack’s family. If you have information about the family, please contact the coroner’s office at 228-865-4290.

According to Sgt. Joshua Bromen, with the Gulfport Police Department, Mack was walking south at the intersection when he was hit by a white Chevrolet Cobalt.

Witnesses say the driver of that vehicle was not speeding. They say it was simply very difficult to see the man walking. The driver of the Cobalt is not facing any charges at this time.

Gulfport police said officers worked 20 accidents Monday, and urged drivers to be cautious on the roadways.
