PHOENIX — One man is dead after being hit by a vehicle Saturday evening in Phoenix.

Authorities responded around 7:30 p.m. Saturday to Cave Creek and Bell roads to the report of a collision involving a pedestrian. Upon arriving on the scene, police located an adult male pedestrian, identified as 43-year-old Carlos Lopez-Chavez, who was suffering from serious injuries. He was later pronounced dead on the scene.
