LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The man who was hit by a car and killed while crossing Southern Parkway has been identified.

According to a Jefferson County coroner, Lawrence Lynn Junior, 41, was hit by the car while trying to cross against traffic around 9 p.m. Monday.

Police spokesman Dwight Mitchell said Lynn was walking east to west on Southern Parkway when he was struck by a southbound car and hit the windshield.

"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."

Lynn was pronounced dead at the scene.

No charges are expected against the driver.
