JASPER COUNTY — A Noblesville man was hit and killed by a driver Wednesday morning in Northwest Indiana.

Indiana State Police say Miles S. Williams, 25, of Noblesville was driving on I-65 near the 230 mile marker when his vehicle got a flat tire on the passenger side.

He pulled over to the left side of the roadway, but troopers say there is just a grass median and a narrow area of rumble strips there and not a full lane of emergency shoulder.

ISP says Williams was trying to change the tire, but that part of the car was still in the road.

Another vehicle driving on I-65 hit both Williams and the vehicle. Williams died at the scene.

Troopers did not say if the other driver was injured or if they could face any possible charges.
