A Penn Hills man was struck and killed by a vehicle on Thursday afternoon while walking near a golf course.

Edward Joyce, 81, was pronounced dead at the scene following the accident that occurred at 5:36 p.m. in the 6500 block of Saltsburg Road in Penn Hills, a spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said.

Penn Hills police Chief Howard Burton said the motorist immediately stopped and was cooperating with officers.

The accident occurred near the 3 Lakes Golf Course, formerly known as the Alcoma Golf Course, and Burton said Joyce could often be seen walking in the area picking up golf balls.
