A Carlisle man died Saturday after being hit by a vehicle as he walked along Ritner Highway.
State Police at Carlisle said in a news release that David McCall, 20, died when he was hit by a dump truck as he was walked with another man “in the roadway” on Ritner Highway near its intersection with Log Cabin Road in Penn Township around 2 a.m.
Police said the driver of the dump truck, whom they did not identify, traveled south on Ritner Highway when he thought he hit a deer. He continued driving, but later stopped. Upon examining his truck, he realized he had hit “something other than a deer,” police said.
Police said the driver is cooperating and the investigation is ongoing.
