Police say the driver did not see the man before hitting him and that the sun was apparently a factor. The driver remained at the scene.

The victim was taken to St. Charles where he later died.

The driver was cited for Failure to stop and remain stopped for pedestrian. 

Police say it will be up the Deschutes County District Attorney’s Office to determine if any charges are filed.
