Kentucky pedestrian killed near Bonnaroo music festival

A 22-year-old Louisville man has been killed after being struck by two vehicles on Interstate 24 near the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.
The Tennessee Highway Patrol has identified the victim as Casey J. Young.
A preliminary THP investigative report says Young was in the median of the Interstate around 1 a.m. Saturday and, for unknown reasons, ran into the eastbound lanes of I-24. The report said he ran into the side of a tractor- trailer, fell to the ground and was then struck by an SUV. The victim died at the scene.
Young appeared to have attended the music festival. THP Lt. John Harmon said he had a Bonnaroo bracelet.
The report said Young was under the influence of alcohol and drugs but gave no explanation for how that conclusion was drawn.  Toxicology tests have been requested.
