AURORA (AP) – Authorities say a man walking in downtown Aurora was struck and killed by an SUV.

The Arlington Heights Daily Herald reports that police say the man was walking south on Broadway Avenue shortly before 4 a.m. Sunday when the collision happened. The driver of the SUV says she discovered she had hit the man when she heard a loud thump from the front of her vehicle and pulled over.
