A 39-year-old Kent man was killed after getting hit by two vehicles as he was trying to walk or run across Interstate 5 in Seattle just north of I-90.
Khanh Huynh died from multiple blunt force injuries, according to the King County Medical Examiner’s Office. The collision occurred at about 9:35 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 17, according to the Washington State Patrol.
Huynh was crossing in a restricted area to pedestrians on the southbound mainline from west to east when a vehicle driven by a 37-year-old Seattle man struck him in lane one. Huynh came to rest in lane two where he was struck by a vehicle driven by a 27-year-old Kent woman. Both drivers pulled over to the right side. The drivers were not injured. Huynh died at the scene.
There are no charges pending, according to the State Patrol.
Although people have organized protests on the freeway in recent months, there was not any protests on the freeway Saturday night, said Trooper Rick Johnson, a State Patrol spokesperson, in an email.
“We have no reason why the individual was on the freeway prior to the incident,” Johnson said.
