BATON ROUGE- Police closed major streets after a person was hit by a car late Friday night.

Perkins was closed between Essen and Bluebonnet while emergency responders worked the scene.

"I just saw a body flip in the air," an eyewitness said.

The extent of the truck driver's injuries were not immediately available. There was also no information about any possible citations or charges related to the crash.
