Pedestrian struck and killed

LOWNDES COUNTY, GA (WALB) -  A pedestrian was killed when a truck hit him on a Lowndes County highway.

28-year old Jason Delk died after being struck by a pickup around 11 o'clock Wednesday night on Highway 41 just south of Lovett Avenue.

Troopers say he was near the middle of the road just before a turn lane.

The driver, 39-year old Danny Goslin, did not see Delk in the dark and ran into him.

Troopers say pedestrians need to use extreme caution on busy roads especially at night.

"It's a good to walk against the traffic so when traffic is coming at you so you can visibly see when traffic is approaching," said Georgia State Patrol TFC Brian Bass. "Stay off the roadway and if you're walking at night try to wear reflective material or light colored clothing."

No charges will be filed against Goslin.
