The State Patrol says pedestrian Paul Dmitruk, of Richfield, was "in the left lane" on the southbound portion of Highway 13 in Burnsville, near Washburn Avenue, Tuesday night.

Around 11:45 p.m., Dmitruk was hit by a vehicle traveling in that lane.

He died at the scene. It's unclear what he was doing on the highway. There is a stoplight and crosswalk at that intersection.
