An Arnold man walking along the side of I-55 in Barnhart on Saturday afternoon (July 9) was struck by a vehicle, but was not seriously hurt.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol reported that Paul Lefebvre, 44, was walking on the right shoulder of I-55 north of the 184.4 mile marker just south of the Barnhart exit at 5:28 p.m. when an unknown vehicle drove off the right side of the road and struck him. The vehicle returned to the road and drove away, the report said.
Lefebvre sustained minor injuries and was taken by Rock Township Ambulance to St. Anthony’s Medical Center in south St. Louis County, the report said.
He was treated and released, a hospital spokeswoman said.
