TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - A Toledo man is dead and a woman was hospitalized after they were struck by a car Wednesday night.

It happened at the intersection of Holland Sylvania Road and Bancroft Street just before 11:30 p.m.

Police said 45-year-old Jason Rhoads and 50-year-old Julie Lheureux tried to cross Holland Sylvania after leaving a bar and did not yield to oncoming traffic. Rhoads was pronounced dead at the scene and Lheureux was taken to the hospital with injuries police described as life-threatening, but was last listed in stable but serious condition.

Police suspect alcohol was a factor for both pedestrians and the driver was not at fault.
