Man Dies After Being Struck by Hit-and-Run Driver in Boston @izziebot

A man was killed Thursday night after being struck by a hit-and-run driver in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood.

Police said the man in his 80s was struck by a truck in the area of Massachusetts Avenue and Newbury Street at about 10:20 p.m.

He was taken to Brigham and Women's Hospital, where he later died. His name has not been released.

The driver of the vehicle, a dump truck, did not stop at the scene, but was stopped by officers a short while later.

Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

The crash remains under investigation.
