Police say a pedestrian killed along the frontage road of I-35 in North Austin Thursday night.

It happened at around 8:45 p.m. in the 8300 block of I-35, just north of the Hwy 183 intersection.

Austin Police say a vehicle traveling on the frontage road lost control and struck a pedestrian on the sidewalk.

Austin-Travis County EMS says the victim -- identified only as a man in his 40s -- was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the vehicle reportedly exited the vehicle following the accident and was detained by a witness. Police are questioning the driver.

Police say the second and third lanes of I-35 just south of Rutherford are closed as well as the Rundberg exit ramp due to the pending investigation.

Further details were not immediately available.
