RUFUS, Ore. —

A California commercial truck driver was killed in an unusual accident early Thursday on Interstate 84 near Rufus, Ore.

Oregon State Police say 48-year-old Lino Domingo Lopez-Hernandez of Bakersfield had stopped to look for an axle and two tires that came off the truck.

As he was walking along the freeway shoulder, a pickup truck hit the axle, knocking it into him. He then went over a guardrail and fell about 200 feet down an embankment where he was found dead.

Police say the pickup driver, 51-year-old Donny D. Barton of Longview, Wash., was not injured.
