A Mississippi Highway Patrol vehicle has struck and killed a pedestrian, law enforcement agencies said.

The Tunica County Sheriff's Office said deputies found Joiner with serious injuries, and he did not survive. The sheriff's department from neighboring DeSoto County will conduct an investigation.

Mississippi Department of Public Safety spokesperson Bailey Martin told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the trooper involved in the incident has been put on "modified duty," but she did not say what that means. She said the department would not comment further because the investigation is ongoing.
