Jogger dead after being hit by pickup truck


A jogger was pronounced dead after being hit by a pickup truck Thursday evening, on Highway 36, near the long bridge.

Authorities have identified 24-year-old Joe Cildoz Jr. as the jogger who was killed during the accident that occurred two miles west of Temple city limits.

According to authorities, a 2003 Ford pickup was driving west on Highway 36, while Cildoz was jogging on the shoulder. Authorities say the pickup hit Cildoz, then the driver overcorrected and entered the eastbound lane.

The pickup then collided with a 1992 Chevy Cavalier that was eastbound on Highway 36.

Cildoz was pronounced dead at the scene and the two drivers were treated for non-life threatening injuries.
