The State Patrol reports that Jeremy Martin, 34, of Kalama died yesterday morning, fatally injured after being hit by a semi near the Kalama River Road exit. Troopers say that that the collision happened at 8:45 yesterday morning; they say that Martin parked his car on the northbound on-ramp to the freeway at the Kalama River Road exit, then he got out of his car and ran into the northbound freeway lanes. Martin was hit by a Peterbilt truck driven by Jonathan Dodge, 46, of Longview. Troopers report that Martin was taken to St. John Medical Center, where he eventually died from his injuries. Dodge was unhurt in the crash. It’s still not known why Martin decided to run out into the freeway. No citations are anticipated.
