FARLEY, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say an eastern Iowa man has been killed after being hit by a vehicle whose driver is suspected of drunken driving.

The Dubuque County Sheriff's Department says 21-year-old Dawson Besler, of Epworth, was struck and killed early Sunday on Highway 20 in Farley.

Authorities say a vehicle driven by 24-year-old Alex Hannan, of Dubuque, was merging onto the highway around 3 a.m. Sunday when it struck Besler.

Besler was pronounced dead at the scene. It's unclear why he was on foot in the area.
