COVINGTON, Ky. (WLWT) – A pedestrian struck by a car on the interstate has died.
The crash happened at around 1 a.m. Thursday on Interstate 71/Interstate 75 northbound, Kenton County dispatchers said.
Witness Shawna Hudson told WDTN’s NBC affiliate WLWT that she saw the car traveling with a person on its windshield from Kyles Lane to the 5th Street exit in Covington, where it stopped at a gas station.
“I said that can’t be real; that has to be a sick joke. That has to be a joke,” Hudson said.
WLWT News 5 Reporter Megan Mitchell saw police inspecting what is believed to be the car in question, which was parked at the gas station with a white sheet covering the windshield.
The interstate closed at Kyles Lane from about 1:30 to 5:30 a.m. while police searched the highway with flashlights.
