Allegheny County homicide detectives are investigating the death of a pedestrian who they said was struck by a Monroeville police car Thursday night.

Michael Barnes, 49, of Monroeville died from injuries suffered in the accident that occurred at 7:24 p.m. in the 3900 block of Monroeville Boulevard, said a spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office. Barnes was pronounced dead at 7:49 p.m. in Forbes Regional Hospital.

County police said the 49-year-old man was crossing the street when he was struck by the patrol vehicle. They said the officer was not responding to an emergency call at the time.

There is no pedestrian walkway, street lights or traffic control signals where the accident occurred.

George Stakelin, who lives nearby, said he heard a noise, went outside and recognized the man as a resident of the neighborhood. “They worked on him for about 10 minutes on the ground and then some more in the ambulance before taking him to the hospital.”
