COVINGTON, Ky. (WXIX) - The person killed Wednesday while walking on southbound I-71/75 has been identified.

Jeffrey Alden, 34, of Burlington, died at the scene of the crash on the interstate at the MLK on-ramp near the cut in the hill, according to the Covington Police Department.

The crash happened around 8:30 p.m.

Covington police say they responded after receiving a call about a person walking on the interstate. While officers were en route, they received word the person had been hit by a vehicle.

Alden might have been “trying to get into cars and may have been in a manic state,” police say.

Filing criminal charges in the case is not expected, police say.
