A statement from Louisiana State Police Sgt. James Anderson says early Sunday troopers were called out to a report about a pedestrian hit nearly 5 miles east of the Texas state line. The pedestrian was identified as Ennis resident 60-year-old Saul Zamarripa Ramirez.
Ramirez was walking in a westbound lane when a 2006 Honda Ridgeline pickup truck struck him. The Calcasieu Parish Coroner's Office pronounced him dead at the scene.
The driver was a Nederland, Texas resident. He voluntarily did a breath test that showed no alcohol in his system.
Police do not currently know if Ramirez was impaired. A toxicology sample was obtained from Ramirez for analysis.
