Williams was struck while picking up a piece of plastic on the I-70 west exit ramp to Ohio 202 just after 10 p.m. He was wearing dark clothing and bending down when he was struck by a car that was exiting the highway, Huber Heights police said.
A witness was performing CPR on Williams when officers arrived, and medics described Williams’ injuries as “extremely severe.”
The driver of the car who hit Williams is not expected to face charges, since Williams is believed to be at fault, according to a police report.
