Police Beat

Anacortes Police Department says a pedestrian was killed early Wednesday morning in an encounter with a semi-truck in downtown Anacortes.

Details are still sketchy, but APD says, in a news release, that it is assisting Washington State Patrol with an investigation of a fatality semi-truck versus pedestrian collision that occurred at approximately 3:20AM Wednesday at the intersection of Commercial Avenue and 12th Street.

It isn't clear whether the pedestrian was in a crosswalk at the time of the collision.

The female pedestrian has not been identified.

I have requested more information from Washington State Patrol.
