The Odessa Police Department responded to a fatal car-pedestrian accident in the area of 4th Street and Dixie Boulevard Saturday night 

Several units were on the scene along with the mobile crime lab.

The family and Odessa police identified the victim as Robert Wilson, 47. 

Police say he was crossing Dixie and was not at a crosswalk. A truck was traveling south on Dixie and struck Wilson.

A family member says he was walking across the street from his apartment to get milk for his baby at the 7-Eleven gas station, a trip he makes frequently.

Wilson was transported to Medical Center Hospital and later was pronounced dead.
