FLOYD COUNTY, IN (WAVE) – A man was hit by a vehicle and killed after crashing his own vehicle on Interstate 64, near Georgetown, Indiana.

According to Floyd County dispatchers, the accident happened around 9:50 p.m. Tuesday in the eastbound lanes of I-64, near mile marker 116. The caller said they located a deceased person in the roadway.

Floyd County Sheriff Darrell Mills said the man swerved off the interstate and crashed. He then walked to the roadway to try and get help, but was hit by another vehicle.

A black Ford Taurus left the interstate around mile marker 116. The driver, Andrew Fischer of New Albany, 20, walked away from the crash onto I-64. For unknown reasons, Fischer was in the travel portion of the roadway where he was hit by a red 2013 Ford passenger car.

Mills said no charges are expected to be filed and officers are calling Fischer's death a tragic accident. Police do not believe alcohol or drugs were a factor.
