City police identified yesterday the man who died Tuesday night shortly after being struck by a car in Howard Park as Kevin Blackston, 39, of no fixed address.

Officer Tim Hamilton, of the traffic investigation unit, said Blackston, whose family lives in the Gwynn Oak area, was standing in the middle of the southbound lane of the 5000 block of Liberty Heights Ave. about 11 p.m. when he was struck by a 2002 Jaguar driven by a woman who, witnesses told police, tried to avoid the man.

Hamilton said Blackston was pronounced dead at Sinai Hospital less than 30 minutes later.
