HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Authorities say a pedestrian has been struck and killed while walking in the road along a busy section of Interstate 77 in North Carolina.

The Huntersville Fire Department said on Twitter a passenger in the vehicle that struck Allen was injured and taken to the hospital.

The incident closed the northbound lanes of I-77 for several hours.
