The Dubois County Sheriff's Office is investigating after a pedestrian was hit.

Authorities say the Sheriff's Office was advised of a broken-down vehicle on State Road 56 just East of County Road 400 East shortly after midnight Friday.

We're told while in route, dispatch received another call of a pedestrian being hit by a vehicle.

Authorities say 41-year-old James Taber of Perry County saw the broken-down vehicle and pulled over in a power station to offer help.

We're told Taber was changing a tire when 83-year-old Nancy Brosmer of Dubois was traveling eastbound on State Road 56 and failed to see the vehicle, swerving at the last minute.

Authorities say Brosmer struck Taber on the right side, sending him in the air.

Dubois first responders were called to the scene.

The Sheriff's Office says Taber was taken to Memorial Hospital where he was later released.

We're told alcohol and drugs are not suspected to be a contributing factor.

After a damp start to our Monday, the rain and skies gradually cleared for many of us and we were left with a pleasant and breezy, albeit humid afternoon throughout the Tri-State. The southerly winds paired with the clearer skies later in the day helped drive temperatures back into mid to low 80s for many of us. The evening ahead should remain dry and mild; after seeing temperatures around 80° dinnertime and 75° by 10PM, we'll fall off to a morning low near 69° in Evansville early Tuesday morning.
