From staff reports

A 26-year-old man was killed late Tuesday when he was struck by a station wagon as he walked on Interstate 90 near downtown Spokane.

The pedestrian, identified as Yannel D. Mignonsin of Cheney, was in the westbound lanes of I-90 near the Hamilton Street exit at about 10:45 p.m. when he was struck, the Washington State Patrol reported in a news release.

Detectives are searching for the driver, who did not stop at the scene. Mignonsin was taken to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center where he died, WSP said.

Investigators believe the station wagon was a 2005 to 2010 gray Volkswagen Jetta. It likely has right front and right side mirror damage, WSP said.

WSP asks anyone with information about the car or driver to call Detective Ryan Spangler at (509) 227-6644.
