The victim was struck by another vehicle and declared dead at the scene. Police are withholding his name until his family is notified. Police report a call at 4:40 a.m. of a man in dark clothing along the highway. A second call reported he was lying in the highway. A third caller said he struck what he believed was debris. Forsythe is in custody pending a bail hearing on Monday. It was not known Sunday if he is represented by a lawyer.
