Springfield police have identified Tuesday's fatal accident victim as 58-year-old Edwin Oscar Simonetty.
A pickup truck on Plainfield Street hit and killed Simonetty in the north end. Ale Moultrie, the driver of the truck, is cooperating with police.
Police said this is the second time he has hit and killed a pedestrian in the past year. He hit and killed a woman on Memorial Avenue in West Springfield last year.
No charges have been filed in either case.
