A 23-year-old from Buffalo, Minnesota, died late Wednesday after being struck by a vehicle while standing in the roadway.

The State Patrol says the crash happened just before midnight on I-94 westbound, just east of Highway 25 in Monticello.

A driver in a Chevy Silverado, a 49-year-old from Little Falls, was attempted to pass, when he struck the man, whom the State Patrol says was "standing in the roadway."

The circumstances leading up to the crash are unclear, and as of Thursday morning authorities had not identified the victim by name.

The State Patrol says alcohol does not appear to have been a factor.
