A man crossing Greenwell Springs Road was hit and killed Friday night when he ran into the path of a pickup truck, police said.

The unidentified victim, 56, was running across the 7300 block of Greenwell Springs about 9:15 p.m. when a 2002 Dodge Ram struck him, Baton Rouge Police Capt. Joan Cage said Saturday in a news release.

The man, who died at the scene, was running across Greenwell Springs from north to south when he crossed paths with the truck in the right lane, Cage said.

The driver, who wasn’t identified either, was not arrested, the release said.

The Traffic Homicide Unit is continuing to investigate the accident, Cage said.
