BLOOMINGTON - A Bloomington man and boy walking near their home have died after being struck by a pick-up truck Thursday evening.

Authorities identified the man as Pedro Guerrero, 27, and the boy as his nephew, two-year-old Alejandro Guerrero.

According to McLean County Coroner Beth Kimmerling, both were hit by the truck while walking their dog.  The dog was also struck, and did not survive.

Authorities say the man and his nephew, who was in a stroller, were found on opposite sides of Old Colonial Road.  First responders say neither were responsive.

Kimmerling says the truck's driver has been cooperating with authorities.  According to a preliminary investigation, poor lighting may have played a role in the incident.
