It was dark and Justin Conover-Bowman was wearing dark clothing Sunday night at 9:43 p.m. when he was hit by first an SUV and then a minivan as he attempted to cross Richmond Road at Fontaine in Lexington.
He died of his injuries a short time later, according to Fayette County Deputy Coroner John McCarty.
“He was attempting to cross Richmond Road — north to south — and he was not in a crosswalk,” McCarty said. “He was struck by one vehicle and then another.”
Conover-Bowman, 33, was formerly of Harrodsburg and was the son of Cindy Conover of Lancaster and Greg Bowman of Harrodsburg. He grew up in Danville and lived most of his life in the area. He leaves behind a son.
He was reported to be working to overcome chemical dependancy issues that had resulted in his homelessness and had even joined the Street Voice Council, a homeless advocacy group in Lexington.
