LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- No charges are expected to be filed after an accident early Christmas morning that killed a pedestrian on the Gene Snyder Freeway.
The victim has been identified as 19-year-old Lucas Piccoli from Utah.
Metro Police were called about 7:30 a.m. to the eastbound lanes of the Snyder near the Dixie Highway on-ramp. Police say the driver of a Ryder rental truck and two additional cars struck Piccoli, who died at the scene.
Witnesses tell police that the man was walking along the shoulder of the highway, and he appeared to start running like he was trying to cross road. The driver of the truck swerved but ended up hitting him.
LMPD spokeswoman Alicia Smiley says they interviewed the driver of the truck and the drivers of other cars that hit the victim. Investigators still have not determined why he Piccoli was on the roadway. Police have not found any abandoned cars in the area.
Eastbound lanes of the Snyder Freeway were closed for more than three hours, as police conducted their investigation.
