Emergency ambulance car

Authorities in Mandeville are continuing to investigate the death of a pedestrian Tuesday morning.

Police say 52-year-old Gregory Discon wrecked his vehicle earlier when a dog ran in front of him at East Causeway Approach located just north of the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway.

Investigators say he died instantly when he was struck by a vehicle after he got out of a car that came to pick him up when something he'd left on the roof fell off into the roadway.

At last word, no charges had been filed.
