Leo Steinman II, 37, was pronounced dead at the scene in LaSalle Township, according to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
Mr. Steinman was walking south on South Telegraph in the southbound travel lane just north of North Otter Creek Road about 12:05 a.m. when he was struck by a pickup truck driven by Christian Byrd, 23, of Monroe, deputies said.
