Preliminary investigation shows Ryan M. Henderson, 21 of Fulton, was traveling east on KY 94 driving a 2000 Ford pick-up truck.
Dairus T. Carr, 92 of Hickman, was walking across the highway towards his mailbox.
The wet roads were a factor in Mr. Henderson’s ability to stop in time.
Mr. Carr was transported to a hospital in Union City, due to his injuries, and passed away at approximately 5:57 P.M. while being transferred to a hospital in Memphis.
KSP Trooper Adam Jones is continuing his investigation.
KSP was assisted on the scene by the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office, and the Ken-Tenn EMS.
