TITUSVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Police say a spectator waiting for the space shuttle to launch was hit by a car and killed.

Police said 70-year-old John Devoles was walking across the street Friday when he was hit. The street was jammed with cars on both sides of the four-lane highway as drivers tried to catch a glimpse of the space shuttle Endeavour. The launch was later scrubbed.

The crash is under investigation. Charges are pending against the driver, who authorities said may have been speeding.

Devoles died at a hospital a few hours after being hit. Authorities said he was not walking in a crosswalk.
