LOBDELL, La. -

A pedestrian was killed last night after being struck by an SUV in West Baton Rouge Parish. 

Shortly after 8:00 p.m., Louisiana State Police Troop A responded to the single-vehicle crash on LA 415, south of LA 76, in West Baton Rouge Parish. 

The crash took the life of 22-year-old Jamie Tabolinsky of Denham Springs.

Troopers say Tabolinsky was walking across LA 415 when, for unknown reasons, the victim walked into oncoming traffic. 

Consequently, Tabolinsky was then struck by an SUV in the right lane of LA 415 northbound.

Tabolinsky sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene by the West Baton Rouge Parish Coroner's Office.  

The driver of the SUV was properly restrained and was not injured.  

Troopers say impairment is not suspected to be a contributing factor in this crash, but a toxicology sample will be taken from Tabolinsky and the driver for analysis.
