For the second consecutive day, a pedestrian was struck and killed by a vehicle while walking alongside a road in St. Martin Parish.

The St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office reports that at approximately 8:45 pm last night, 26-year-old Marvin Zenon of Breaux Bridge was walking in the roadway in the 1100 block of Salt Mine Road when he was struck by an eastbound vehicle.

He was subsequently transported to a local hospital, but shortly after arrival was pronounced deceased due to his injuries.

No charges are pending at this time and the investigation remains ongoing.

The other fatality occurred the night before on Huval Lane in Cecilia. In that tragedy, 46-year-old Shawn Talley was struck and killed by a vehicle while he was walking on the roadway.
