Kentucky State Police say one of their troopers hit and killed a pedestrian.
It happened when the trooper was driving his cruiser on Kentucky 15, near Kings Ridge, in Jackson in Breathitt County late Sunday night.
So far, investigators haven't released why the victim, Kenneth Sizemore, 38, was in the road.
He died at Kentucky River Medical Center.
Investigators say Trooper Michael Fogleman was on his way to Hazard for a special detail with the marijuana eradication team at the time of the crash.
Fogleman is a five-year veteran with KSP and assigned to the Morehead post.
