A Medford man has been identified as a pedestrian struck and killed in a Wednesday night motor vehicle crash in Selden, Suffolk County police said.

According to police, Timothy Blake, 53 of Medford, was in the middle of County Road 83 at the Route 25 intersection when he was struck by a 2012 Nissan driven by Melanie Purcell of Port Jefferson Station around 9:30 p.m. Purcell was traveling northbound on CR-83 at the time of the crash, police said.

Blake was transported to Stony Brook University Hospital via Selden Fire Department Ambulance, where he was pronounced dead.

The Nissan has been impounded for a safety check, and police say the investigation is continuing.

Detectives are asking anyone with information on this crash to call Sixth Squad at 631-854-8652 or call anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.

This is the second Medford resident killed in a car crash in the past week, following the Saturday morning three-car-crash in Farmingvile that killed Jennifer Colon, 40 of Medford.
