HELENA — A Helena Valley man was struck and killed by a vehicle just after midnight Monday morning.

Lewis and Clark County Sheriff and Coroner Leo Dutton said at approximately 12:26 a.m. law enforcement responded to a pedestrian fatality on North Montana Avenue near Dave's EZ Stop.

Nathaniel Carlson, 37, was struck while walking along N. Montana Ave. Dutton says Carlson commonly walked to and from his home on Sierra Road.

The driver of the vehicle remained on the scene and called 911 after the incident. Montana Highway Patrol Troopers reported no indicators of driving under the influence and the driver consented to a blood draw.

"Foul play is not suspected at this time," said Dutton in a statement. "...Our condolences to the family of Mr. Carlson."
