WHITE OAK, Ala. (AP) - Emergency workers say a Colbert County man was struck by a car and killed when he left his vehicle to try to rescue two kittens he thought he might have hit moments earlier.
Colbert County Coroner Carlton Utley says 55-year-old Michael Arndt was pronounced dead about 7:30 p.m. on a road in the White Oak community.
Arndt lived about a mile away.
Witnesses say Arndt had left his SUV in the road when he went to
retrieve the kittens, and the car that struck him had swerved off the two-lane road to avoid his vehicle.
Arndt operated a service truck for McGriff Tire Co. in Decatur.
