A pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle in the 4500 block of West Loomis Road Monday afternoon, according to Greenfield Police Chief Brad Wentlandt.
Police have not yet released the identity of the victim, a 54-year-old South Milwaukee man, who was walking southwest bound on Loomis Road in the curb lane of the roadway.
He was struck by a 31-year-old Greendale woman driving a Cadillac Escalade northeast bound, according to Wentlandt.
The man was pronounced dead on the scene.
Police say neither drugs nor alcohol appear to be a factor in the crash.
The Wisconsin State Patrol has been called in to assist in the investigation, Wentlandt said.
The accident caused major delays for afternoon commuters. One witness told Patch police shut down the northbound lane of Loomis from Layton Avenue to Edgerton Avenue.
A resident in the area told Newsradio 620 he saw the man just before he was struck by the Escalade.
