KSP looking for truck believed to have hit pedestrian in Nortonville

HOPKINS CO., Ky. (WFIE) - Kentucky State Police was asking the public on Thursday to help identify the driver or company of a white 2018-2022 Freightliner Cascadia.

Evidence recovered from the scene where a missing man was found dead earlier this month, indicates this truck is suspected to have hit Michael “Andrew” Dowd between 2/4/2021 and 2/7/2021, causing damage to the front passenger headlight assembly and hood.

The incident happened near the city of Nortonville, on the southbound side of Interstate 69, near the 103 mile marker in Hopkins County.

Troopers say it’s possible that the commercial vehicle driver did not realize they hit a pedestrian and may have suspected it was an animal or object.

On Friday, KSP officials revealed that after receiving several tips, state troopers were able to locate the vehicle.

The investigation remains ongoing.
