A teenager was killed while crossing Interstate 20 on Friday in Meridian. Around 7:30 Friday night, 17-year-old Ronreagus Dermelle Cole, Jr.,
tried crossing I-20 when he was hit by a semi-truck. The teen was struck by the 18-wheeler in the west-bound lane near the Hilton hotel. Police are unsure as to why the boy tried crossing the busy interstate but remind us, it is never a good idea, to cross a freeway on foot.
