A Nash County man was killed after being struck by five cars and a tractor trailer Monday night.
The accident happened around 10:00 p.m. on U.S. 64 near West Washington Street in Nashville.
Troopers say 52-year-old John Perry of Middlesex stepped into the path of one vehicle, and then landed in the traffic lanes when he was struck by the other vehicles. The Highway Patrol says drivers thought they had hit a deer. All the cars stopped, but the tractor trailer kept going.
No charges have been filed in the accident.
