TELL CITY — A pedestrian from Hawesville, Kentucky, was struck and killed early Sunday along State Road 66, just east of the Waupaca Foundry.
Perry County’s 911 center immediately summoned emergency personnel after receiving a 3:46 a.m. CT call from a male stating he had just struck a pedestrian.
A Perry County Sheriff’s Department deputy arrived to find Roger W. Seaton, of Hawesville, Kentucky, lying unconscious in a ditch.
Perry County Emergency Medical Services transported Seaton to Perry County Memorial Hospital, where he was later pronounced deceased.
Deputies and Indiana State Police crash investigators believe Seaton was walking east toward Tell City on the north side of the highway. Mark A. Hess, of Bristow, was driving a westbound Dodge truck headed toward Troy when the truck struck Seaton on or near the westbound lane.
Authorities are still investigating the incident, according to the sheriff’s department.
The Tell City Police Department, the Perry County Coroner’s Office and Ohio Valley Towing also assisted.
