A Brainerd man is dead after being hit by a vehicle late Thursday night. 

The fatal crash happened around 11:15 p.m. when a 2007 Honda CRV traveling westbound on Hwy. 210 in Baxter when it struck a man east of Cypress Drive. 

Joshua James Carner, 46, of Brainerd, was pronounced dead at the scene. 

The driver and passenger in the vehicle involved, a 50-year-old Baxter man and 47-year-old Baxter woman, were not injured. Neither person in the vehicle was under the influence of alcohol. 

It's unclear what led to the crash and the state patrol is investigating. 

On Thursday, a man was hit and killed by a vehicle in St. Paul, and last Saturday a 22-year-old woman died when she was the victim of a hit-and-run in St. Paul
