A young Concordian participating in a pro-life cross-country walk was struck this morning in Indiana and killed.
Andrew Moore, 20, was walking along U.S. 40, near Stilesville, when he was hit, the Indianapolis Star is reporting.
Moore's journey began in May in San Francisco.
"They had both just started to pray a Rosary a few minutes before he was hit," said Jim Nolan, an organizer, in an e-mail from California. "That's something the group often does while walking."
The report identifies Terry King, 25, of Fillmore, Ind., as the driver. He suffered minor injuries and was taking to the hospital.
The Star reports that Moore was walking near the median fog line of the highway and was wearing a reflective vest at the time of the incident.
Additionally, the cause is still being investigate but police say there is no sign that alcohol was a factor.
The pro-life walk was organized by Crossroadswalk.org. Its goal was to raise awareness about abortion.
