On Saturday, May 2, 2020, at approximately 8:55 p.m., Matthews officers, Matthews Fire & EMS, and Medic responded to the area of Hwy. 74 westbound just before the I-485 exit regarding a report of a pedestrian struck by a vehicle.  Upon their arrival, they located a man with severe injuries that required life-saving efforts to be made by medical personnel.  These efforts were, sadly, unsuccessful and the man was pronounced deceased on-scene.  The identity of the victim will not be released at this time to ensure that proper next-of-kin notification has first been made.  This investigation is being conducted by the Matthews Police Department Accident Reconstruction Team.  No charges have been filed against the driver of the vehicle.
