(SEYMOUR) - A Michigan man was killed Thursday night on Interstate 65 in Jackson County.

Indiana State Police say that at approximately 10 p.m., ISP Troopers responded to northbound I-65 near the 43-mile marker to investigate a fatal crash involving a pedestrian being struck by a vehicle.

The initial investigation indicated a pickup being driven by 55-year-old David A. Buchanan, of Stanwood, MI, was traveling northbound on I-65. For an unknown reason, Buchanan's vehicle left the roadway and entered the median where it became stuck. Authorities say Buchanan left the vehicle and walked northbound on I-65.

Buchanan entered into the northbound lanes of I-65 where he was then struck by a Jeep being driven by 23-year-old Franklin N. Reed, of Nashville, TN. Buchanan was pronounced deceased at the scene by the Jackson County Coroner's Office. Reed was not hurt.

The northbound lanes of I-65 were closed for approximately four hours for crash investigation and cleanup. Jackson County Animal Control responded to the scene and took possession of a dog that was left in Buchanan's vehicle.

Toxicology results are pending on both Buchanan and Reed. The investigation is ongoing.
