Semi Strikes Pedestrian Near TN State Line

Guthrie, KY – A tractor trailer hit and killed a woman walking on Highway 79 in Guthrie, Kentucky early yesterday morning. Kentucky State Police say they are not releasing the pedestrian's name because of difficulty locating next of kin. The wreck occurred just north of the Tennessee state line, where police say the woman was walking in the southbound lane. The driver of the tractor-trailer, David Strange, says the road's foggy conditions and the woman's dark clothing kept him from seeing her. Police are still investigating the accident.
