A man crossing Interstate 435 near Northeast Parvin Road with a bicycle early Friday was struck by a pickup truck and killed.
The man was identified as 24-year-old Aaron Thompson of Kansas City.
The driver of the pickup was headed north when he struck the pedestrian about 12:04 a.m. as he was pushing a bicycle across the highway. The pedestrian died at the scene.
Alcohol doesn’t appear to be a factor in the crash. It was witnessed by several other motorists, police said.
