Deputies talked with a Pasco man roughly an hour before he was hit and killed by a minivan Wednesday.
A driver called police to report that Christian Fitch, 47, of Pasco, was in the middle of the street at 5 a.m. near an area called Clark’s Addition.
Deputies spoke with Fitch at that time, said Franklin County Coroner Dan Blasdel.
Fitch reportedly was still walking on Clark Road at 6:12 a.m. when a driver, heading west, struck him, said Sgt. Monty Huber of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies closed Clark Road for several hours while they investigated the scene.
The minivan’s driver cooperated with the investigation.
