Kanawha County sheriff’s deputies have released the name of a pedestrian who was killed and a pedestrian who was injured after being struck by a vehicle in Cross Lanes.

Henry Stuck, 40, was injured and was transported to Charleston Area Medical Center General Hospital. He was in satisfactory condition, a hospital spokeswoman said.
The accident occurred when a vehicle operated by Curtis Schoolcraft of Poca was southbound on Cross Lanes Drive and struck the pedestrians in the travel portion of the road, the sheriff’s office said.
