Lufkin police say pedestrian killed in vehicle accident

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Lufkin Police Department:

This morning we worked a fatal auto-pedestrian accident on South Timberland Drive.

A 47-year-old man who is believed to be homeless, died at CHI St. Luke's Health Memorial Lufkin shortly after the 9 a.m. accident. I will not be releasing his name until tomorrow to allow for family notification.

George Rowe, 83, of Lufkin, was southbound in the 200 block of South Timberland Drive in a blue F150 pickup when the man walked out in front of him. The man had crossed into the road from the old Loving Toyota location.

A Good Samaritan arrived on the scene and stayed with the man until Lufkin Fire paramedics arrived.

No citations were issued.

The crash remains under investigation.
