A Longview man has been hospitalized after running into traffic on I-5 near Vader Dec. 28, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The 38-year-old pedestrian had been seen leaving the median of I-5 near Milepost 58, east of Vader, and running west in front of a utility van driven by a 31-year-old Winlock man.

The pedestrian reportedly made it to the southbound ditch, but then re-entered the freeway and was struck by the van.

When ambulance crews arrived, the man was transported to Providence Centralia Hospital with unspecified injuries. It was not stated what his motives may have been for entering traffic, and it was unknown at the time of the report if drugs or alcohol had been involved.

The driver has not been charged in the matter and was able to drive the van from the scene.
