The Addis Police Dept. is investigating a deadly wreck that happened Saturday morning.
An 18-wheeler hit a pedestrian at the intersection of LA 1 northbound and Bird Heights. The exact cause of the accident remains under investigation at this time.
Unfortunately, the pedestrian died on the scene. He’s been identified as Barry Dellucci, 64, of Addis.
Dellucci was attempting to cross Bird Heights at the time on his way to Dickies when he was hit.
“We will be getting video from the truck to make sure the truck didn’t swerve into shoulder,” said Addis Police Chief Ricky Anderson.
No arrests have been made at this time as it’s an ongoing investigation. If the video that officers are waiting on were to show cause for an arrest, the truck driver may be charged at that time.
The charge could be negligent homicide if the video shows the truck at fault.
