HAMBURG, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a Colorado man walking on Interstate 29 in southwest Iowa was killed when he was hit by a car.
The Fremont County sheriff's office told Atlantic radio station KJAN that Mark Torgerson, 52, of Loveland, was walking in the southbound lane when he was hit near the Iowa Highway 2 interchange.
The accident was reported about 11:30 p.m. on Friday. The sheriff's office says a preliminary investigation shows a Nebraska sheriff's deputy had given Torgerson a ride to a truck stop along the Iowa-Nebraska border earlier in the evening.
Torgerson's vehicle was later found in Cass County in Nebraska.
