LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man was struck and killed on Dixie Highway early Thursday morning.

The victim has been identified as 47-year-old Michael Gibson.

Shively Police tell WDRB that Gibson was hit by a pickup truck as he was crossing Dixie Highway just north of Gagel Avenue a little after 4 a.m.

Detective Josh Myers says the driver that hit the man was on his way to work and simply didn't see Gibson crossing the busy highway.

Investigators don't believe alcohol was involved, and say the driver most likely won't face charges.
