70-year-old pedestrian dies after being struck on N Military Highway in Norfolk


NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A 70-year-old pedestrian died after being struck by a vehicle Tuesday night on North Military Highway in Norfolk.

It happened around 5:30 p.m. at North Military Highway and Poplar Hall Drive. The pedestrian, Norfolk resident Howard E. Covert, was found at the scene suffering from serious injuries. He was later pronounced dead at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital.
