Kentucky State Police Trooper Mike Witt says the accident happened about 1:22 p.m. on Highway 836, which is also known as Cripple Creek Road, near the junction of Highway 2985 under the interstate bridge.

Officials say the inmate, Darren Adams, 28, was hit by a green 1999 Chevy Cavalier and suffered numerous injuries.
