BATON ROUGE - The family of an out-of-town teen has decided to donate the 19-year-old's organs after medical experts determined he would not recover from fatal injuries after being hit by a car.

Blake Cordes was hit near the corner of Nicholson and Ben Hur after midnight Sunday. According to Louisiana State Police, Cordes was walking along LA 30 when he stepped into one of the travel lanes and was struck by a vehicle.

Social media accounts suggest Cordes attended school outside Baton Rouge and was from the St. Tammany Parish area.
