Pedestrian killed by Semi at 2nd and Thor identified

The medical examiner’s officer said Monday afternoon that Larue Brown was the person who was struck and killed by a semi truck early Wednesday morning at the intersection of 2nd and Thor.

Brown, 39, died of head, neck and chest injuries, according to the medical examiner’s office.

The incident happened shortly before 6 a.m. Wednesday. Witnesses say after Brown was hit the driver of the truck kept going and got on westbound Interstate 90.

While Spokane Police said last week that technically the incident was a hit and run, they don’t know if the truck driver realized that they hit someone.

The driver of that truck was located and has been interviewed by detectives but no arrests have been made.
