Jason Waltman, 25, of Ruston, was killed inside the city limits, somewhere between Rabb’s Steak House and Cooktown Road, Ruston Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Curtis Hawkins said.

“It appears at this time that the driver was over double the legal limit for intoxication,” Hawkins said. “The driver apparently struck the pedestrian either on or just off the roadway.”

An investigation by the Ruston Police Department accident reconstructionist is being conducted to determine all the contributing factors to the accident, Hawkins said.
