(Witt)--A 46 year old Witt man was killed after being hit by a car Saturday morning on Witt Avenue. According to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, 911 received a call from a driver who reported that she had swerved to miss an animal in the roadway, but may have run over a person because she saw clothing.

46 year old Lynn "Leonard" Calame of Witt was pronounced dead at the scene by Montgomery County Coroner Rick Broaddus. The driver of the vehicle, 21 year old Bailey Braun of Staunton, was westbound on Witt Avenue near East 17th Road when the incident happened. Authorities believe Calame was laying on the roadway when the accident occurred.

The incident remains under investigation.
