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.
"All efforts to locate the next of kin for Larry W. Peyton have been unsuccessful," ISP Sgt. Jerry Goodin wrote in a news release Friday. "We are submitting a photo of Larry W. Peyton in hopes someone may recognize him and assist us in our efforts to locate his next of kin."
