An elderly man died Tuesday morning after he was hit by a truck, while walking in Lauderdale County.

Alabama State Troopers say 91-year-old O.Z. Tucker was walking on Alabama 157 around 3:40 a.m. when a passing truck hit him.  This happened in the Pisgah community between Underwood and Cloverdale.

This happened less than a mile from the victim’s house, and friends say Tucker often walked to check on a family member who lived nearby.

Troopers say Tucker was wearing dark clothing and it was foggy at the time of the accident.

The driver of the truck was not hurt.  No charges are expected.
