A pedestrian was struck and killed on US 24 in Defiance, Ohio on Tuesday.
At approximately 11 A.M., William Wales, age 73, stopped his vehicle on the right shoulder of US-24 with his flasher lights and ignition on. He then got out of his vehicle and attempted to cross the westbound lanes of traffic when he was struck by a 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
It appeared to local authorities that Wales was attempting to remove a small animal carcass from the center of the roadway when he was struck by the Jeep. Wales was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Jeep was wearing his seat belt, and was not injured in the crash as the investigation into the incident continues.
