SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) -- Police say they think a Somerset man found dead alongside a roadway was hit by a car.

The body of 45-year-old Ricky Meredith was found Tuesday morning alongside a highway in Pulaski County.

Sheriff's Detective Brett Whitaker told The Commonwealth Journal that it appears Meredith was headed west when he was struck by an eastbound vehicle. He said the accident probably occurred Sunday night or early Monday.

Police are searching for any witnesses who might have seen Meredith walking along the road.

The body was sent to Frankfort for an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
