Man walking in dense fog struck, killed on highway

SUNNYSIDE, Wash. (AP) — The Washington State Patrol says the fog before dawn Sunday was a factor in the death of a man who was walking in the middle of Highway 241 near Sunnyside.

The driver didn't see 67-year-old Juan Gutierrez who was fatally injured.

State Trooper Erik Magnussen tells KNDO the patrol is asking drivers to slow down and be especially cautions in the fog.
