Delmar Eckert was walking on South Street on Oct. 26 when collision occurred

An 89-year-old Woodstock man was killed after being struck by a vehicle late last month.

Delmar Eckert was hit by a vehicle Oct. 26 while walking in the 200 block of West South Street, according to Woodstock Police Chief John Lieb. Eckert was transported to Centegra Hospital-Huntley, where he died the next day.

It was not clear to police whether the collision occurred inside or outside of the crosswalk, Lieb said.

The driver, Wenzel Roessler of Wonder Lake, was cited for failure to use due care to avoid striking a pedestrian. Roessler flagged down a police officer to report the accident, Lieb said.
