A man crossing the street in Tyler early Monday morning has died of his injuries after being struck by a car. 

Tyler police say 47-year-old Ruben Oswald Orantes of California failed to cross the road at a designated cross walk when he was struck by a car in the 3200 block of W. Gentry Parkway.

Investigators believe Orantes was walking back to his hotel where he had been staying with a group of workers with a tree trimming business.

The driver of the vehicle will not be ticketed and police have determined Orantes was at fault.

Orantes was transported to ETMC where he passed away a short time later as a result of his injuries.
