An unidentified man was killed Wednesday night after he stepped in front of a truck traveling north on State Street.

Murray Police Sgt. Gary Pedersen said the man was standing in the median at 5100 S. State about 7:10 p.m. when "he put his head down and walked right in front of the truck."Witnesses said the man, who had no identification, had been drinking alcohol and that the driver could not have avoided a collision. Emergency personnel pronounced the man dead at the scene.

The truck was not breaking the speed limit when the accident occurred, Pedersen said.
