A 49-year-old man has died after being struck by a vehicle Tuesday.

Robert R. Dunton, of 1713 Northfield Square, succumbed to his injuries at Evanston Hospital at 8:45 p.m. after being hit by a car driven by Maria Domann, 79, of Glenview about two and a half hours earlier.

The accident occurred at 6:09 p.m. Tuesday in the 200 block of Happ Road, but the exact details of how Dunton was hit are unclear. The Major Crash Assistance Team (MCAT) is investigating.
