A pedestrian was hit by an SUV and killed overnight in Quincy, Massachusetts, officials said.

Quincy officers responded to Newport Avenue near the intersection of Oakland Avenue around 1:50 a.m. Saturday and found a person had been struck by a Jeep, the Norfolk District Attorney's office said.

The victim, who has been identified as a 62-year-old man, was pronounced dead on scene, prosecutors and Quincy police said. His name has not been released.

Two people who were inside the Jeep at the time of the crash remained on scene, and were still there talking with officers when authorities arrived. Their names have not been released, but Quincy police identified the driver as a 21-year-old man and his passenger as a 20-year-old woman -- both of Quincy.

There was no immediate word on whether any charges would be filed. Quincy police said there were approximately 278 feet of visible skid marks leading to the stopped Jeep and victim.

The on-scene investigation was complete by 7 a.m., at which time Newport Avenue was reopened.

An investigation is ongoing. Any witnesses should contact the Quincy Police Department at 617-479-1212.
