A 70-year-old man who was struck by a car last month in Durham has died, police said Tuesday.

Tommy Rogers of Durham was trying to cross West Cornwallis Road shortly after 7:45 p.m. Feb. 19. He was struck by a Kia Optima driven by 23-year-old Aailyah Jackson of Chapel Hill, according to police.

Rogers was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, police said. Jackson was not injured.

Investigators do not believe speed or alcohol were factors in the crash, and no charges have been filed.
