GRUNDY CENTER, Iowa (AP) — Police say a man has died after being hit by a car in a convenience store parking lot in Grundy Center.

29-year-old Anthony Guyer, of Aplington, was in a Casey's General Store parking lot on Wednesday when he was hit by a car driven by 77-year-old Jean Newton, of Grundy Center.
