INDIANAPOLIS - Indiana State Police have asked for help locating the family of a pedestrian who was killed while walking on Interstate 265 early Friday morning.
Police said Larry W. Peyton, 66, from Indianapolis, was pronounced dead at the scene after he was struck by a semi on I-265 near the exit for State Road 62.
An ISP trooper witnessed the crash, and he said Peyton was walking in the driving lane at the time of the crash, and he appeared to be staggering.
Police said the address listed on Peyton's identity information -- 2502 Mars Hill St. in Indianapolis -- was not accurate.
