According to Iowa City Police public safety information officer Lee Hermiston in an email sent to the Press-Citizen on Monday morning, the guy, who was out on a run, was identified as 45-year-old Corey J. Hite.
A car struck Hite on May 22 at 4 p.m. near the intersection of Melrose Avenue and Kennedy Parkway, about a half-mile west of Iowa City West High School, according to police. Off of Melrose, Kennedy Parkway turns north and enters a neighborhood of houses. On Melrose in that region, the posted speed limit is 35 MPH. On Kennedy Parkway, the posted speed limit is 25 MPH.
