A man was killed early Tuesday morning while walking across Highway 190/I-14 in Killeen after he was hit by a truck.

Police said the person driving the truck, a maroon Dodge Ram, was going east in the middle lane and didn't see the man with enough time to avoid him. It happened just before 6 a.m. right before the W.S. Young exit.

Justice of the Peace Bill Cook pronounced the man dead just after 6:30 a.m. His name won't be released until his family is notified.

The highway was closed for about two hours.
