82-Year-Old Waltham Man Struck, Killed By Car

The driver of a vehicle that struck an 82-year-old Waltham man out for his daily walk is facing vehicular homicide charges.

Police say 33-year-old James Keating was under the influence of drugs when his car struck Dorazil Vitezslav on Forest Street near Bentley University just after 11 a.m. Wednesday.

The MetroWest Daily News reports that Vitezslav, who was unconscious and had injuries to his head and body when police arrived at the scene, was flown to a Boston hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Keating is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday on charges of motor vehicle homicide while operating under the influence of drugs, negligent driving and improper driving. It could not be determined if he has a lawyer.
