A 55-year-old Iowa City man was killed on Interstate 380 after being hit by a semi on Friday afternoon.

The Iowa State Patrol says the man's car was parked on the side of the road on I-380 northbound near mile marker 5. The man reportedly got out of his car and walked into the path of the semi driven by 52-year-old Kenneth Pilkenton from Arnold, Missouri. The State Patrol says Pilkenton braked and swerved but was not able to avoid hitting the Iowa City man.

The man's name is being withheld pending notification of the family.

The accident is being investigated by the Iowa State Patrol and the Johnson County Sheriff's Office.
