An Oregon man was struck Wednesday afternoon by a tractor-trailer on Interstate 205 in Salmon Creek, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Jason Rivera Peinado, 18, of Gresham, Ore., was parked about 3:30 p.m. on the shoulder of I-205 south near 134th Street.

He got out of the vehicle and stepped into the lane and was struck by a tractor-trailer driven by Martin J. Gorton, 60, of Vancouver, according to a State Patrol crash memo.

Rivera Peinado was taken to PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver. His condition was unavailable Thursday. A hospital spokeswoman said he was transferred to a different facility.

According to the State Patrol, no drugs or alcohol were involved in the crash, although charges could be filed pending an investigation.
