A pedestrian died after being struck by three vehicles Tuesday night in Pine Bluff, police said.

Officers responded around 5:20 p.m. to the intersection of 23rd Avenue and Olive Street, according to a news release from the Pine Bluff Police Department.

There, police found 58-year-old Frederick Rice of Pine Bluff. He was transported to Jefferson Regional Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.

Witnesses reported that Rice was struck by three vehicles. The first two left the scene, and the driver of the third stopped and is cooperating in the investigation, they said.

No charges are expected against the third driver, according to police. In a state police report, the third vehicle was identified as a 1998 Chevrolet S-10 pickup that was headed north on U.S. 63B.

Police noted that “heavy rain” was falling at the time of the crash.

Wednesday afternoon, police released a photo of one of the cars believed to have struck Rice and fled the scene. It was said to be a white four-door sedan.
