PEOPLE reveals the former wrestler was killed as he ran across a busy road and hit by an oncoming truck.
Ross Township Det. Brian Kohlhepp told WPXI, 'We do have witnesses. There was other traffic on McKnight [Road] at the time, so we were able to speak with people who actually witnessed the accident.'
He continued to say police were still investigating the accident but added there was 'no indication that this was anything other than a terrible accident at this point.'
