Posted: Updated:

CBS 3 media partner Mass Live and The Republican reported that 77-year-old Donald Hammersmith was the man struck and killed by an SUV on Saturday night.

Hammersmith is a retired Chicopee firefighter.

Police said Hammersmith was crossing Grattan Street, near the Lucky Strike restaurant, but was not in a crosswalk.

They said speed did not appear to be a factor; however, there may have been poor visibility due to the weather.

As of now, there are no charges against the driver.

The crash remains under investigation.
