SOMERS — A Union Grove man was killed early Saturday morning after being struck by a vehicle as he walked along Highway H, just north of Highway S.
According to a statement from the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department, investigators believe that the 51-year-old man was walking north in the northbound lane of Highway H (88th Avenue), when he was struck by a two-door Chrysler 200 that also was headed north. There are no streetlights in the area, which is located near the Kenosha Airport, and the man was wearing dark clothing.
When deputies arrived on scene just before 3 a.m. Saturday, they found that the pedestrian, who was in the east ditch, had suffered severe injuries. Somers rescue personnel determined that the man was deceased.
The two women in the Chrysler were uninjured. The 31-year-old driver and her passenger, both of Kenosha, are cooperating with the investigation, sheriff’s officials said.
The identity of the man was being withheld Sunday, pending notification of his family.
