In an apparent suicide, a man walked out into oncoming traffic early Wednesday evening on Interstate 35E in Hugo. He was hit by a semitrailer truck and an SUV, killing him instantly, the State Patrol said.
"It appears to be an intentional act on his part," said State Patrol spokesman Lt. Eric Roeske.
Police have not released the victim's name.
The incident, near the Tart Lake Road exit, temporarily shut down southbound traffic.
Neither of the drivers was injured or arrested, Roeske said.
