Heidelberg, MS (October 30, 2020) – Around 8:40 p.m. on Wednesday night, October 28, a man was killed in a pedestrian accident in Heidelberg.
According to the Mississippi Highway Patrol, the accident occurred when 31-year-old Antonio Dunnieang was struck by a vehicle as he was walking along I-59. He was involved in a prior accident and crashed his vehicle, which was why he got out of his car and started walking.
When Dunnieang was walking up the hill, another car hydroplaned in the area and struck him. The driver stayed at the scene of the accident, though their identity is not yet known.
The roadway was closed down in the area of the accident for some time.
No further details have been released but the investigation continues.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim at this time.
