Kentucky Fayette County Coroner Seeking Help in Finding Family of Victim

The Fayette County, Kentucky coroners office is asking for the help of the public on Wednesday, October 16th, to help find the family of Mario Rodriguez-Pena. He was hit by an SUV while walking on New Circle Road around 9:00 Tuesday night in Lexington, Kentucky. Rodriguez-Pena was taken to UK hospital with major injuries. He died later in the night at the age of 55. He was reportedly walking in the middle of the road, where there is no crosswalk. "At this point it appears the person was attempting to cross New Circle Road. We're not 100 percent certain on the direction from which side to the other. We just know that they were in the middle of the outer loop," said Lt. Chris Young with the Lexington Police Department. At this time, no charges have been filled against the driver.
