Body Found Along Rural Road

More Video...

State police say a 31-year-old Sharpsburg man who was struck and killed on a northeastern Kentucky rural road early this morning was hit by two vehicles.

The man was identified as 31-year-old Jackie Miller.

State police say Miller was initially hit at 12:15 a.m. by a 2007 Chevy pickup driven by 56-year-old Richard George of Carlisle. Then, he was hit by a 2000 Jeep driven by 42-year-old Karen Jones, also of Carlisle.

Detectives say Miller was lying in the roadway on Kentucky 57 in Nicholas County when he was struck by the pickup, then by the Jeep.

The Nicholas County Coroner pronounced the victim dead at the scene.

No charges were filed, but death remains under investigation.

    Ive known Jack for a long time and I date one of his cousins and I just have to say fault or no fault if you hit someone or not once but twice no matter if there in the road are not if the 1st person didnt stop and then the a 2nd person hits him and didnt stop and then they just leave him there How could that be called a accident to me thats a hit and run I know the people that hit him are hurting but his family is hurting too. This is very hard for his family he was loved so much and now he leaves behind a daughter that will never know how much she would have enjoyed her daddy.

    I understand that richard and karen didn't murder my brother but at least one of them should have stayed that makes them very wrong and I hope that the police checked them for DUI which I'm sure is why they both left. If thats the case they're guilty. Jack wasn't lying in the road his body that I personally view showed he was upwright and if you went to the scene you'd see richard swerved off the road and into the driveway which jack was standing in and drug 200ft and then ran over by karen. There is no skid marks saying that either tried to stop. I have my facts very straight down to the fact that they left and someone else called in that my beautiful little brother was laying there. And just one more thing I live in northern ky. and my cell phone worked at the scene, plus why did these two drive all the way home when the bar that at least one of them owns is that close. Those two aren't as innocent as some want them to be. I'm sure I'll never know what really happen to my brother but I hope people learn this if you hit someone with your car don't leave them. Thats someones loved one

    First of all no one has the right to judge anyone except for God. I have a very heavy heart that people are quick to judge and lay blame way before all the facts of the investigation are given. It hurts me that so many people point fingers when in all actuality you never know what you would do or feel if you were in fact walking in drivers shoes. I cannot imagine why anyone would be out walking after midnight on that stretch of road. I am familiar with that area and believe me it is not somewhere someone would want to be at that time of the night especially in the middle of the road. My heart goes out to the victims family but at the same time I hurt for the drivers and I cannot imagine how truly traumatized they are after this terrible accident. We should all remember that none of us are superior to others and you should let the facts be known before you go passing judgment on those who are deemed innocent until proven guilty.

    OK, I know blame and anger comes along with grief, but...I have a feeling that these two drivers are devastated by what happened, after midnight, on a dark, rural road, where there was no thought in their mind that there would be someone lying in the roadway. I'm sorry for the family's grief but please don't try to make monsters out of a couple of innocent people who are going to deal with this the rest of their lives. Was he alive when they hit him? I don't know him, but on the off chance that he was drunk or drugged and passed out, or walking along this rural road after midnight and just fell over...whatever, explain to his child that adults do not always do what they should do, including the victim (which is often why they become victims) but that the drivers in no way tried to murder this man. Or you could protect the memory of her dad and blame it on the drivers who didn't see him in time.

    Jack was one of a kind...when he smiled the world new it. He was the funniest person I have ever known.I have known Jack and his family for over 25 years if not longer. It kills me to feel this impact of such grief as myself and Jack's family

    There is no cell phone service in that area to call for help I know I lived just down the road all my life. Things now a days are crazy. Someone could have put the body there for someone to stop and do something to them. You have to look at all aspects. Just stop for a second and put yourself in the drivers shoes. It's after midnight, dark and why would someone be in the middle of the road? Get all facts straight before making comments and making judgements. I feel sorry for his family but he wasn't thinking either to be out at midnight passed out or whatever reason he was in the road. Don't forget to explain why there daddy was out at midnight and not at home. Accidents do happen and noone is at fault. God is the only judge so leave it to him.
