COLUMBS, Kan. (AP) -- An elderly man from southeast Kansas died after he was hit by a car when he got out of another vehicle that had hit a deer.

The Cherokee County Sheriff's Department says 90-year-old Louis Nicoletti of Columbus was struck Tuesday as he crossed U.S. 160 about three miles east of Columbus. He died later at Freeman Hospital West in Joplin.

Nicoletti was walking across the highway after a car he was riding in had hit a deer. Neither Nicoletti or his wife, who was driving the car, was injured in that accident.
