A Coeur d’Alene man was hit by a car Saturday morning on Interstate 90, 17 miles west of Spokane, and was transported by helicopter to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center.

Joseph Harrison, 46, was reportedly parked on the westbound shoulder of the highway at about 7:20 a.m. and was standing in front of his car, according to a Washington State Patrol news release.

WSP reported Harrison then ran into the right-hand lane of the highway, at which point he was struck by a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder.

Harrison was transported by helicopter to the hospital. He was in stable condition as of Saturday morning.

Charges are pending for Harrison, the news release stated, and the cause of the incident was due to disorderly conduct.
