LONGVIEW - A Longview man has died after he was hit by a car while crossing the street.

The crash happened around 9:40 p.m. Thursday on South Green Street, near its intersection with Covington Drive.

According to a Facebook post from the Longview Police Department, witnesses reported Robert Earl Jones Jr., 43, was trying to cross in front of a car, but "did not allow enough time to get across the street."

That's when police said the car, driven by an 18-year-old female, struck Jones.

Paramedics took Jones to Christus Good Shepherd Medical Center with life-threatening injuries.

On Saturday, police confirmed Jones died of his injuries.

Police said driver was not cited, saying she was "not at fault."
