Man dies after being hit by truck in Lafourche Parish

A man trying to cross a highway in Lafourche Parish was killed after being hit by a pickup truck. The incident occurred Sunday around 1:30 a.m. on Highway 657 in Larose.

According to a Louisiana State Police, Troop C spokesperson, the victim, a 38-year-old Hispanic man, tried to cross the highway, just north of Hwy 308 when he was hit and killed.
