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.
