A pedestrian was struck and killed by a tractor-trailer Friday night in the parking lot of a Rockbridge County truck stop.
Virginia State Police said they are investigating a possible hit-and-run at the TA Truck Center-Lee Hi Truck Stop on U.S. 11.
At about 9:20 p.m., Keith Alan Kinder, 59, of Richlands, was walking around a parked vehicle when he stepped into the path of an oncoming tractor-trailer, according to a news release from state police.
Kinder died at the scene.
The tractor-trailer did not stop and continued on its way out of the parking lot.

State police were working with North Carolina officials to determine if the truck driver was involved in a hit-and-run incident, the news release stated.
