Worth County- Deputy Thomas McDonald was responding to a call near the Worth-Tift County line around 9:30 Thursday night when he hit 26-year old Christopher Bernard McDaniel.

McDaniel was walking in the center of the southbound lane of highway 256.

"There was also a witness that returned to the scene. I believe they were northbound going to Sylvester, and had stated that they'd seen the pedestrian in the roadway as they came by and had come back to the scene where they saw the county truck heading out of town," says Trooper Carl Taylor.

Troopers also say both poor visibility and dark clothing worn by McDaniel were a factor.

The deputy has not been charged, but the crash is still under investigation.
