Troop I spokesman Trooper Stephen Hammons says a pedestrian was struck and killed on the I-49 Frontage Road near Roxanne Road in Sunset at approximately 6:15am today.  Hammons said the pedestrian was wearing dark colored clothing and walking with the flow of traffic.  The victim was apparently walking in the south bound traffic lane when struck from the rear by a car driven by 59 year old Guilliam Leger of Opelousas.  Leger was not injured in the crash.  The victim was not identified pending notification of next-of-kin.  It’s not known if the victim was impaired but toxicology samples were taken.  The accident remains under investigation and no charges have been filed.

Trooper Hammons reminds pedestrians they should wear light colored clothing and walk against the flow of traffic.
