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.
