Walker hit by car on U.S. 150


July 27, 2011
A pedestrian is in critical condition at University Hospital in Louisville after he was struck by a vehicle on U.S. 150 at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday, according to a report filed by Indiana State Trooper David A. Scott.

Shawn Sneed, 18, of Georgetown was walking east near the center dividing line on U.S. 150 near Buttontown Road in Greenville when he was struck by an eastbound 1985 Chevrolet El Camino driven by James Hampton of Louisville.

Police said they do not know why Sneed was walking in the roadway.

Upon arrival of first responders after a 911 call to the Floyd County Sheriff's Department, it was determined that Sneed had suffered life-threatening injuries. He was transported to the hospital, where he remains in critical condition.

The Floyd County Combined Accident Reconstruction Team was called to the scene to assist with the investigation.

The investigation is continuing by the Floyd County Sheriff's Department, and police do not anticipate that any criminal charges will be filed.

Also assisting at the scene were the members of the Greenville Volunteer Fire Department, Yellow Ambulance, Indiana State Police and New Albany Police Department.
