An Opelousas man is dead after being hit while crossing I-49. The accident took place around 3:00 this morning just north of the Creswell Lane exit. Police say 32-year-old Carlos Weston was crossing the highway from the North Service Road when he was struck. Investigators say the driver never saw Weston because he was wearing dark-colored clothes. The accident remains under investigation.
