Georgetown Police identify pedestrian killed in crash

A 35 year old man is dead after being hit by a vehicle Saturday night.

Georgetown Police say Arthur Lee Clardy was attempting to cross IH-35 near CR972 around 8:45 when he was hit by a vehicle. Officers say witnesses told them Clardy and his girlfriend had been involved in an argument while traveling from Dallas to Austin. When police tried to contact the couple, police say Clardy ran across the interstate and when he tried to run back, he was struck.

The southbound lanes of the interstate were shut-down for several hours during the investigation but have since re-opened.
