Police say that the incident happened as an officer was attempting to apprehend a pedestrian who was walking along the concrete barrier in the 7400 block of I-35. The officer turned on the cruiser’s warning lights, prompting a nearby semi truck to change lanes. The pedestrian then hopped the barrier and ran onto the interstate, where he was struck by the semi. His motivations for doing so are unclear.
