An elderly Olathe man was struck by an SUV and killed while trying to cross busy Santa Fe Street in Olathe on a motorized scooter.

Police said the man was crossing from the north side of the street, just west of Ridgeview Road, shortly after 2 p.m. when he was struck by the eastbound vehicle. There is not a crosswalk at that location.

The woman driving the SUV stopped and was interviewed by police. The case is under investigation.

Santa Fe was temporarily closed to traffic.
