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.
The driver told police that he thought he had hit some debris at first and he pulled into a nearby Jiffy Lube to call 911.
When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered there was a body lodged underneath the driver's car.
Police believe the man may have already been lying in the road before he was hit. They added there is a possibility he was already dead by the time he was stuck.
The driver of the car is fully cooperating in the investigation.
