By Oliver Lazenby

A man jumped off the Hughes Avenue overpass at 12:23 a.m. on Wednesday, September 6, and was hit by a vehicle that fled, according to a memo from Washington State Patrol.

Dennis D. Hill, 59, jumped off the overpass onto the northbound lanes of Interstate 5, where a vehicle hit him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Washington State Patrol doesn’t have a description of the vehicle that hit Hill, but the agency is looking for witnesses, trooper Heather Axtman said. The incident is still under investigation.

A representative at the Whatcom County Medical Examiner’s office said she couldn’t provide any information on the incident.
