An Eastern Kentucky man was hit by a vehicle and killed Wednesday evening while walking along U.S. 460 in Pike County. John K. Long of Millard was pronounced dead after being taken to Pikeville Medical Center, state police said in a news release.
Long was hit by a pickup truck driven by Jason O'Quinn, the news release said. Long was walking along the two-lane road when O'Quinn apparently lost control of his truck and hit him, the news release said.
The wreck happened in Millard, about 10 miles southeast of Pikeville.
Alcohol is not thought to have been a factor in the crash. State trooper Johnny Slone is investigating.
