In Knox County, one man is dead after being hit by a deputy responding to a crash Saturday.

Indiana State Police say they responded to a vehicle versus pedestrian crash on U.S. 41 South of Hess Road shortly before 9:30.

Police say a Sheriff's Deputy was responding to a crash with their emergency lights on.

We're told a man then walked from the median into the deputy's lane.

The Sheriff's Deputy braked, but couldn't avoid hitting the pedestrian who was later identified as Kenneth McGiffen.

Police say McGiffen drove off the roadway and hit a tree and fence.

That's when he left the scene and was hit by the responding Sheriff's Deputy.

Police say the investigation is ongoing at this time.

It was an absolutely gorgeous afternoon throughout the Tri-State, but despite our seemingly endless supply of sunshine today, temperatures remained more than 10° cooler than the norm for this time of the year. Fortunately, today's peak temperature of 65° represents our coolest anticipated afternoon high temperature through the remainder of our extended forecast. While it is indeed encouraging that temperatures will gradually rise through the rest of the work week into the weekend ahead, we'll still have to deal with temperatures back down into the upper 30s and low 40s early Thursday morning.
