TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities say a sport utility vehicle has struck and killed a pedestrian on Interstate 470 in Topeka.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/2eqJiLJ ) reports that the man was hit Monday afternoon in the westbound lanes.

Kansas Highway Patrol Technical Trooper Stephen La Row says the man had been in the same location on the interstate about 30 minutes earlier. At that time, Topeka police moved him because pedestrians aren’t allowed on the interstate.

La Row said the man then returned to the interstate a short time later and was struck. The man was pronounced dead at the scene. His name wasn’t immediately released.

The SUV driver wasn’t hurt.
