SUTHERLIN, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say a Tuesday afternoon crash killed a 51-year-old female pedestrian in the southbound lanes of Interstate 5 in southern Oregon.

Sgt. Matt Bowersox says a commercial truck pulling a trailer was southbound in the right lane in Sutherlin when the pedestrian began to run from the right shoulder toward the center median. The pedestrian was hit by the trailer’s rear wheels and was dead at the scene.

Lt. Gregg Hastings says the name of the victim will be released Wednesday.

The southbound lanes were closed with detours while the crash was investigated.

All lanes reopened by about 8 p.m. Tuesday.
