A Gretna man was struck and killed Sunday night while walking along an unlit roadway in Jefferson Parish.

Troopers say they began investigating a crash involving a pedestrian shortly before 8:00 pm on September 5 on LA 428 near Park Place.

The crash claimed the life of 52-year-old Kiet Do of Gretna.

A preliminary investigation revealed that Do was walking in the eastbound lanes of LA 428 when he was struck by an unknown vehicle, which then fled the scene.

After being struck, Troopers say Do was lying in the roadway when he was hit by several other vehicles.

Troopers say the area of the crash was very dark with no street lights due to Hurricane Ida damage.
