CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A Wells Fargo executive was struck and killed by a dump truck while walking in uptown Charlotte Tuesday morning, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police.

The accident happened around 7 a.m. at Stonewall and College streets near the Charlotte Convention Center.

Police said Brett Morgan, 47, was hit and killed by the dump truck trying to make a right turn onto Stonewall Street.
