Police say Ralph Hawkins was struck by a pickup truck as he stood in a neighbor’s driveway Saturday morning. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The Norfolk district attorney’s office said Monday the driver is a police officer from a neighboring community who was not acting in any official capacity. The office didn’t disclose a name because no charges have been filed.

The Enterprise reports the driver is a Stoughton police sergeant who in 2012 received a valor award for rescuing several hostages and arresting a suspect during an armed robbery.
