By DONNIE JOHNSTON
A Culpeper man who was reportedly walking in the middle of the eastbound lane on the Sperryville Pike was struck and killed Wednesday morning.
Kevin Brown, 57, was pronounced dead at 7:10, about 30 minutes after being struck by a 1988 Jeep driven by a Culpeper Couny woman.
According to town public information officer Wally Bunker, the woman swerved into the turn lane to avoid the pedestrian but struck him with the right front of her vehicle.
The accident took place in front of Brown’s home in the 1000 block of the Pike.
The accident remains under investigation. No charges have been filed.
