Tractor-trailer hits, kills pedestrian

A Versailles tractor-trailer driver hit and killed a pedestrian in Todd County early Tuesday.

David R. Strange, 46, was driving south on U.S. 79 at about 3:10 a.m. when he hit a woman; she had been walking in the road and wearing dark clothing, state police said.

State police said it was also foggy and dark, which kept Strange from seeing the woman.

Her identity has not been released because the coroner's office has not been able to reach the next of kin.

Strange and a passenger, Gregory L. Anderson, 56, of Lancaster, were uninjured.
