He was struck by a passing vehicle, possibly a commercial motor vehicle, that did not stop at the scene.

OSP troopers and emergency personnel responded to the crash, near milepost 215, at 7:29 p.m. on Wednesday.

The Oregon Department of Transportation and the Halsey-Shedd Rural Fire Protection District assisted at the scene.
