A stranded Louisville driver lost his life recently when he was struck by an SUV on the side of the Gene Snyder Freeway, according to a news report from WAVE Channel 3. The driver was changing a flat tire on his car when an SUV driving down the freeway hit him.

The accident occurred around 10:30 at night, after darkness had fallen.

He was working on the tire with his back to traffic when the SUV struck him. The SUV’s driver told investigators that he could not see the disabled car or the man changing the tire, and so he did not realize what had happened until after the accident occurred.
