Traffic was shut down on the I-71/75 Highway in Covington, Kentucky after a man’s body was discovered along the side of the road. Police are investigating the incident and believe it may have been a hit-and-run.
The body was identified as Donald Holt (60) of Independence, Kentucky. His body was found lying along the highway barrier early Monday morning.
Mr. Holt was spotted a few hours earlier, around 3 A.M., at Saint Elizabeth Covington. Police were contacted at 6:55 A.M. with reports of his body being discovered. It is unclear why Mr. Holt was on the Interstate.
Evidence points to Mr. Holt being hit by a tractor-trailer. WLWT5 NBC reports that the highway has since reopened, although police are still investigating the incident. They are asking anybody who may have been driving by at the time or who may have seen anything to come forward.
