WASHINGTON PARK — A 31-year-old man was killed Friday after he was struck by a vehicle while walking along Interstate 64, according to state and local authorities.

The St. Clair County coroner identified the man as Gregory J. Horton, of the 1400 block of Ohio Street in St. Louis. Horton was pronounced dead about 11:20 a.m., Coroner Calvin Dye Sr. said.

Illinois State Police had reported earlier that a pedestrian was struck on I-64 near Washington Park. The vehicle that struck Horton left the scene and it was not clear why he was walking along the highway.

Traffic along eastbound I-64 was reduced to one lane as authorities investigated.

No other details were available from state police.
