EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The man who was sent to the ICU after getting hit by a vehicle nearly one week ago has died.

Vanderburgh County Coroner Steve Lockyear confirmed Thursday that 18-year-old David Bonner died as a result of the injuries he sustained during the accident last Friday.

Officers responded to Washington Avenue, just east of Kentucky Avenue, for a crash involving a pedestrian around 9 p.m.

Police say the vehicle was traveling eastbound and struck the pedestrian crossing the street southbound. They say the pedestrian was unresponsive at the scene.

We are told the driver of the vehicle showed no signs of impairment and consented to a chemical test while multiple witnesses gave Evansville police statements.

Police told 14 News that detectives, crime scene and an accident reconstructionist arrived at the scene to investigate.
