(SCOTTSBURG) - On Sunday, around 6:30 p.m., 50-year-old Fred Moss from Louisville, KY was walking east across U.S. 31 in Scottsburg at Cherry Street when he was struck by not one, but two trucks.

As he was walking in the southbound lane, a 1999 maroon Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck, driven by 23-year-old Lucas Petty of Scottsburg, struck him in the roadway.

After Moss was struck, he was knocked into the northbound lanes, still in the roadway, where another vehicle, a white 2004 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck driven by 37-year-old Travis Riley of Seymour, struck him again.

Moss died at the scene.

Indiana State Police Reconstructionists were called to the scene to assist in the investigation of the crash. After it is completed it will then be forwarded to the Scott County Prosecutor's Office for review.

U.S. 31 was closed for approximately two hours while the investigation was completed.

The Scottsburg City Police, Scott County Sheriff's Department, Scottsburg Fire Department, Scott County Coroner's Office and Scott County E.M.S. all assisted at the scene.

No further information is available at this time.
