Stafford authorities say the driver of a fire truck that struck a pedestrian Friday evening has been cleared.
The accident happened along a busy six-lane portion of Warrenton Road. The fire truck attempted to avoid hitting 69-year-old John Whitehurst as he crossed in a poorly lighted area and not using a crosswalk.
The fire truck was enroute to an accident with its lights and siren activated.
Whitehurst of North Myrtle Beach was taken to an area hospital where he later died.
