Previous Coverage:

SPOKANE, Wash. - A man was killed at 2nd and Thor in east Spokane just before 6:00 a.m. Wednesday. The pedestrian was walking southbound on Thor when it happened.

Spokane police tell KHQ that the driver didn't stop after the crash and kept driving and then headed west on I-90. WSP told KHQ that several drivers with trucks similar to the one involved in the fatality have been stopped in Moses Lake and Wenatchee as authorities try to identify the truck involved. They say the driver of the truck may not have known he or she hit someone.    

Earlier, 911 dispatch received a call that a pedestrian was acting strangely and was darting in and out of traffic. Thor was closed from Sprague south to 3rd Ave. for the entire morning commute while authorities investigated.  

We're also learning that investigators are working on getting red light photo video as well as surveillance video from the Tesoro convenience store to help them with the investigation.
