A person standing in an eastbound lane of I-20 in Douglas County was hit and killed Friday morning, according to the Georgia State Patrol.

According to investigators, a pedestrian standing in the left lane was struck by an eastbound pickup truck and died at the scene. Troopers were attempting to locate a family member of the person killed late Friday morning.

No further details were immediately available.
