Northbound I-35 through Temple was moving at a snail's pace Friday morning after a pedestrian was fatally injured near Mile Marker 304. Traffic was backed up as far as the south side of town near Midway Drive.

The image above was shared by a listener who was driving along southbound General Bruce Drive.

Jodi Wheatley with TxDOT reported that the victim of the fatal collision was trying to cross I-35 on foot. Their name, age, and other details have not been released. Emergency responders were called to the scene of the collision around 5:45 AM. Wheatley estimated it may take several hours for traffic congestion to be alleviated.

Alternate routes are recommended.
