A man was struck by a car, then become lodged underneath the car and was dragged several hundred yards down a road in Vancouver early Friday morning. 

Police said the man was hit at Southeast Mill Plain Boulevard and 105th Avenue around 3:30 a.m.

Westbound traffic is being rerouted onto 105th Ave. while police investigate. All eastbound lanes are open. 

Friday evening police identified the victim as 37-year-old Fabian G. Rosales and noted that the investigation was ongoing.
