Stamford Police are investigating the death of an 81-year-old man who was struck and killed by an SUV Sunday night on High Ridge Road in Stamford.
James "Jimmy" Goldsmith was a resident of Wormer Congregate Housing at 28 Vine Road, was crossing High Ridge Road from west to east with the aid of a walker in the crosswalk at Vine Road shortly before 8:30 p.m. when he was struck by a 2005 BMW X5 sport utility vehicle operated by a 43-year-old Stamford resident, police said.
The motorist was southbound at the time, police said.
