TITUSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - The daughter of a man struck and killed while walking in the middle of a rural northwestern Pennsylvania road says he had dementia and may have been trying to walk to visit relatives miles away.

Kristen Swanson-Sauerland, of Titusville, says her 65-year-old father, Cecil Swanson, had family in Warren and was walking in that direction when a car hit him about 4:40 a.m. Thursday.

State police in Corry says Swanson was wearing dark clothes and was difficult to see in rainy conditions.

The driver who hit Swanson struck him from behind as he walked in the middle of the road’s eastbound lane in Oil Creek Township. That’s about 90 miles north of Pittsburgh.

Police have not said whether the driver will be charged, but no charges had been filed by Friday.
