Man Struck by Four Vehicles on Kentucky Highway
PINE KNOT, KY. – A man was struck by four vehicles on a Kentucky highway the night of February 3, according to an online news story published at ihoneida.com. The man, who died at the scene, has been identified by officials. It does not appear any of the drivers will be charged for the accident.*
The accident happened late in the evening on February 3 on U.S. Highway 27 in Pine Knot, Kentucky. At approximately 11 p.m., a vehicle was traveling south on U.S. 27 and struck a pedestrian who was walking on the roadway near Kentucky Highway 592, close to the intersection with Kentucky Highway 92.
The pedestrian was reportedly walking in the middle of the highway in the lane of travel. The force of the collision threw the man into the northbound lane of U.S. 27, and he was struck by three additional vehicles that were traveling northbound.
The man suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene. Officials have identified him as 43-year-old Adam Slaven. Slaven’s city of residence was not included in reports.
The driver of the first vehicle that hit Slaven has been identified as 55-year-old Anthony Buttram, of Oneida, Kentucky. Buttram and the other three drivers stayed at the scene and spoke to authorities. Investigators say all four drivers have been cleared, and none of them will be charged for the accident.
It is not clear at this time why Slaven was walking in the middle of the highway. The incident occurred only about 5 miles away from another pedestrian accident that happened the day before on U.S. 27 near Ross Lane in Tennessee. This pedestrian was also walking in the middle of the highway and was hit by two vehicles that left the scene.
