A 67-year-old Covington-area man was killed Thursday night after he tried to cross U.S. 190 and was killed by a passing SUV, according to a news release from the Covington Police Department.

Allen Voss was trying to cross the busy six-lane highway near the intersection with Sunshine Ave. around 9 p.m., the release says.

As Voss got near the middle of the roadway, he was hit by a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe driven by a 22-year old woman, the release said. The woman tried to avoid the crash, but was unable to do so.

Investigators do not suspect that the woman was impaired, and she submitted a blood sample which will be analyzed, the release says.
