LOUISVILLE, KY ( WAVE) - A man is dead after Louisville Metro Police said he was trying to cross against traffic on Southern Parkway at Southern Heights near the Watterson Expressway.

Just before 9 p.m. Monday, officers were called to the accident scene on Southern Parkway and Southern Heights Avenue. Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell said a man walking east to west on Southern Parkway was struck by a southbound car.

The pedestrian hit the windshield in the collision and was pronounced dead at the scene.

"It does not appear that the pedestrian was walking in the crosswalk," said Mitchell, "and it also appears the individual may have had some type of alcohol involvement."

No charges are expected against the driver. Mitchell was not sure if the driver is the person who called police.

The name of the victim has not been released.
