WEST BEND, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say an 18-year-old man putting gasoline in his disabled vehicle was fatally struck by another vehicle in the Wisconsin city of West Bend.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release that it was notified Monday afternoon of a crash on U.S. Highway 45. The release says the man from West Bend died at the scene.

The sheriff’s office says the man was alongside his vehicle outside the lane of traffic when he was struck by the other vehicle, which had traveled over the fog line. According to the release, a 34-year-old Palmyra man driving the other vehicle was not hurt.

Investigators are trying to determine why the Palmyra man’s vehicle left the roadway. The sheriff’s office says alcohol or drugs do not appear to be factors.
