A man struck by a car just outside of Manassas Park on March 9 died of his injuries, Prince William County Police said Wednesday.

The crash happened at 6:50 p.m. on the 8000 block of Centreville Road in Manassas, near Kline's Freeze. Police said Hunter walked out in front of a 2002 Hyundai Elantra driven by a 72-year-old man of McLean.

The driver wasn't injured.

Police said the driver will not face charges, as the victim was intoxicated and was crossing the street outside of a crosswalk.
