One adult is dead and one minor was airlifted to a hospital after being hit by a car while attempting to cross Kiln-Delisle Road near an area elementary school, Hancock County Chief Deputy Don Bass confirmed.

The adult and two children were attempting to walk across the street when they were hit by a car, Bass said.

The trio was crossing the street near East Hancock Elementary School, Bass said. There was a Christmas program at the school.

Bass said details were limited around 6:15 p.m. Tuesday, but sheriff’s officials are on the scene.

People traveling on Kiln-Delisle Road should expect delays. Drivers should take an alternate route if possible until the scene can be cleared.
