A Spokane man died after being hit by a car on state Highway 53 in Idaho near the border with Washington.

Jared M. Pope, 33, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a news release from the Idaho State Police.

Cody F. Breeching, 46, of Greenacres, was westbound on Highway 53 in a 2005 Chevrolet pickup when he hit Pope around 9 p.m., the ISP said.

The ISP received multiple reports of a man “acting erratically and walking/standing” in the middle of the highway. Officers arrived on scene within minutes and learned Pope had been hit by a vehicle.

Authorities believe Pope was under the influence of alcohol.

Pope was walking along the center line in dark clothing when he was hit by the driver, who stopped. Next of kin have been notified. No charges have been filed at this time.

Anyone who witnessed the accident is asked to call the ISP at (208) 209-8620.
