WARSAW, Ind. (AP) - Authorities say a 22-year-old man has died after being hit by an SUV while walking on a northern Indiana county road in the pre-dawn darkness.

The Allen County coroner’s office said Thursday that Michael Keener of Warsaw died at a Fort Wayne hospital from injuries he suffered when he was hit about 5:30 a.m. Wednesday near Warsaw.

The Kosciusko (kahs-ee-AHS’-koh) County Sheriff’s Department say the SUV’s driver told deputies he didn’t see Keener until the last moment because of the dark clothes he was wearing. The driver said he tried to swerve but still hit Keener. The SUV went off the road and hit a utility pole, but the driver wasn’t hurt.
