O’FALLON, Ill. (AP)- A 19-year-old man is dead after he was struck by a car when his truck broke down on Interstate 64.

Illinois State Police officials say Tyler Staral of O’Fallon died Sunday. The Belleville News-Democrat reports that police say Staral’s truck was on the shoulder with its hood up as a Toyota Corolla was driving by.

Authorities say the driver of that car says Staral stepped out into her lane while waving his arms and was hit by the car.

He was later pronounced dead at Memorial Hospital.
