The coroner confirms one pedestrian was killed in a crash in Greenville County Friday evening.

The call came in at 7:46 p.m. that a collision occurred on Easley Bridge Road at Kilgore Street.

The coroner said the pedestrian, a 56-year-old male from Greenville, died of multi body trauma. The manner of death has been ruled an accident.

The pedestrian was identified Monday as Francisco Ortiz of Estelle Street.

The driver was wearing a seat belt during the crash and was not injured.
