A male pedestrian is dead after an accident late Sunday night in rural Carbondale. At around 10:45pm, witnesses say a small truck barreled through the intersection of East Pleasant Hill and Warren Roads and into their yard. Witnesses then saw a young man lying in the road and the driver of the truck leaving the scene.  The victim’s name has not been released.  Prior to that, the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office received a number of calls about a man running in and out of traffic. The Sheriff’s Office is still trying to determine if the man was struck and killed by the truck.
