COLUMBIA — A Mexico, Mo., man was killed Wednesday as he was walking on the westbound lane of I-70 near Kingdom City.
Brad Allison, 36, was in the roadway after his own car slid into the highway median, state troopers reported.
He was first sideswiped by one driver and then hit head-on by a second.
Allison was the only one in his car when it went off the road, said Paul Reinsch, spokesman for the Missouri Highway Patrol.
“His car ended up down in the median,” Reinsch said. “We received notice and officers were enroute."
Allison then wandered onto the westbound lanes and was hit by two different vehicles, he said.
Marissa Brown, 18, of Mexico, Mo., hit him first.
"He may have been walking down the shoulder, but he was struck in the westbound driving lane," Reinsch said.
Allison was then hit a second time by Judy Freeman, 67, of Columbia.
Authorities are still investigating the reason the victim was in the roadway, Reinsch said.
Boone County Medical Examiner Dori Burke pronounced Allison dead at the scene at 5:30 p.m.
Brown and Freeman suffered no medical injuries.
