A 63-year-old man was struck by a vehicle and killed early Tuesday morning in Kent, according to police.

Kent police officers were called to the intersection of 132nd Avenue SE and SE 278th Street at 4:06 a.m. upon receiving a 911 call from the involved driver. The woman reported hitting a pedestrian, who was found lying on the ground.
