(WHAS11) --  The man struck and killed on I-65 near the Grade Lane exit right near the airport late Monday night was identified.

It happened before 11:30 p.m. in the Northbound lanes.

Police tell us 39-year-old Vernon Johnson was changing a flat tire on the right shoulder of the road when a semi going north on the expressway hit him.

The driver is said to have stopped a short distance later and police did question him out at the scene.
