A 27-year-old man from Scott was killed early Tuesday after a sport-utility vehicle struck him as he walked along U.S. Highway 90 in Iberia Parish, State Police said.

Gerard Robert was walking eastbound about 1 a.m. when a 2009 Ford Expedition struck him. Robert was later pronounced dead after being taken to Lafayette General Medical Center, State Police spokesman Brooks David said in a news release.

The driver tested negative for alcohol after submitting to a voluntary breath sample, David said, adding that the investigation remains ongoing.
