ROCHESTER, Wash. (AP) — The Washington State Patrol says a hitchhiker was killed Friday morning when he was hit by a semi-truck on Highway 12 near Rochester.
Trooper Guy Gill told KOMO a car had stopped to offer the hitchhiker a ride when he stepped onto the highway and was hit by the truck.
The truck carrying a load of wood chips tried to avoid hitting the man but could not.
Rochester is in Thurston County, southwest of Olympia and just west of I-5.
