A 90-year-old Ashland man was killed Wednesday morning after he was struck by a car while crossing Water Street.

Anthony "Dan" Kraft, of the 900 block of Lori Lane, Ashland, was in the crosswalk when a car making a left-hand turn from North Main Street onto Water Street struck him.

Kraft was knocked to the ground, striking his head, Ashland police said in a news release.

Kraft was taken to Rogue Regional Medical Center, where he died at about 2:30 p.m.

The investigation showed Tombe was driving less than 10 mph when his car struck Kraft.

The investigation continues, and the case will be referred to the Jackson County District Attorney's Office, which will determine whether Tombe will face criminal charges in the case, the release said.
