Police on Friday identified a 51-year-old Durham man as the person killed when he was trying to cross a U.S. 15-501 exit ramp early Thursday.
Randy Graham was crossing the ramp when he was hit by a pickup truck driven by Jason Beaver, 40, who lives in Person County, police spokesman Wil Glenn said.
The accident happened a little after 6:30 a.m. during the rain-drenched morning commute. Police closed the ramp from southbound 15-501 onto Cameron Boulevard, which is also N.C. 751.
Police had filed no charges by Friday, but Glenn said the case remained under investigation.
