BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss. (AP) - A Louisiana man was killed late Friday when he was standing on Interstate 10 in south Mississippi and was struck by an eastbound sport utility vehicle.
Mississippi Highway Patrol Cpl. Jason Gazzo says 30-year-old Demarcus K. Williams of Pineville, La., had pulled over and parked a Ford Explorer on the right side of the interstate, about two miles east of the Louisiana state line.
At about 10:30 p.m. Friday, Williams was struck by a 2007 Cadillac Escalade driven by a Florida man.
Williams was pronounced dead at the scene.
Gazzo tells The Associated Press that the accident remains under investigation and no charges had been filed Saturday. He says the Florida man was interviewed but not detained. A woman and two children in the Explorer were not injured.
