WASHINGTON (AP) -- D.C. police say a pedestrian who was hit by a garbage truck in northwest Washington has died.

Authorities say the garbage truck was traveling westbound on I Street around 4:30 a.m. Friday. It then turned left onto southbound 13th Street, where the truck struck a pedestrian walking in a crosswalk. The driver continued southbound for approximately half a block when the driver realized he had struck someone and called 911.

The pedestrian was taken to a local hospital where he died. Police have not released the identity of the pedestrian.

The crash is under investigation.
