Police were looking Tuesday for a Honda with major front-end damage after a pedestrian was struck and killed on westbound Interstate 64.
Sean Michael McCauley, 42, of Louisville, was pronounced dead at 1:29 a.m., said Franklin County Coroner Will Harrod.
Franklin County Sheriff Pat Melton said the road was reopened about 8:15 a.m., nearly eight hours after sheriff’s deputies were called to the section between the two Frankfort exits for a report of a body on the interstate. Police rerouted traffic while the interstate was closed for investigation and clean-up.
There are indications that McCauley was walking in the westbound right lane of the interstate when he was struck, Melton said. He was hit by other cars after initially being struck.
An autopsy was planned for Tuesday, Melton said, but results were not immediately available.
Wreckage indicated that the Honda being sought might have been a Ridgeline, according to WKYT.
