PUYALLUP, Wash. (AP) — Police in Puyallup, Wash., say a car dealership employee who was crossing a street in a crosswalk was struck and killed by a car that also jumped a curb and struck several vehicles in the dealership’s parking lot.

Police Capt. Scott Engle says the driver, a 64-year-old Olympia man, was arrested Thursday night for investigation of vehicular homicide. The spokesman says the driver was believed to be under the influence of drugs.

Engle says the driver ran a red light and hit one vehicle before colliding with the 41-year-old male victim, who lived in Federal Way.

The victim was an employee of Korum Ford, where the car came to rest. He was not immediately identified.
