STARKS, La. (AP) — Police say a Texas man has died after being struck by a vehicle while walking on a Louisiana highway.

A statement from Louisiana State Police Sgt. James Anderson says early Sunday troopers were called out to a report about a pedestrian hit nearly 5 miles east of the Texas state line. The pedestrian was identified as 60-year-old Saul Zamarripa Ramirez, a resident of Ennis.

Ramirez was walking in a westbound lane when a 2006 Honda Ridgeline pickup truck struck him. The Calcasieu Parish Coroner’s Office pronounced him dead at the scene.

The driver was a Nederland, Texas resident. He voluntarily did a breath test that showed no alcohol in his system.

Police do not currently know if Ramirez was impaired. A toxicology sample was obtained from Ramirez for analysis.
