A man was hit and killed by a vehicle in Tacoma’s South End late Sunday, according to police.
The man, in his 40s, was hit about 11 p.m. in the 800 block of East 72nd Street, near McKinley Avenue East, police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said Monday.
Another man, whose age is unknown, had minor injuries from being hit.
The female driver, in her 60s, stayed at the scene of the crash, Cool said. The driver was not been booked into jail as of Monday.

As officers investigated the accident, an apparently drunken 29-year-old Tacoma man tried to drive through the scene about 1 a.m., nearly hitting three officers and leading to a short chase, Cool said.
That man was arrested nearby and booked into the Pierce County Jail on suspicion of three counts of first-degree assault, felony elusion, driving under the influence and driving while suspended.
