WILTON — A man who moved to town Sunday died in the afternoon while walking on Munson Road after he was struck by a pickup truck, Police Chief Ethan Kyes said.

Levi Jewell, 29, was wearing dark clothing and walking at about 4:30 p.m. It was very dark out because of the overcast sky.

He was struck by a Ford 350 truck driven by Tyler Hamlin, 29, of Farmington who driving in the same direction as the pedestrian, Kyes said.

CPR and a defibrillator was used on Jewell but it was not successful, he said.
