Eric L. Leavitt, 42, of Lake Forest Park, has been charged with vehicular homicide in the death of a pedestrian around 11pm Tuesday on I-90.

Brandi Frericks of Issaquah and and her 11 year old child were in a disabled vehicle on the side of the road, westbound on I-90 at milepost 24.

Her boyfriend, Robert W. Thompson of Snoqualmie, came to help her.

Thompson was standing between the two vehicles, attaching a tow chain, when Leavitt, who was driving westbound in Lane 1 of 3, left the roadway and struck Thompson and the disabled vehicle.

Leavitt continued past the scene, lost control, left the roadway and came to rest in the ditch on the right side.

Thompson died at the scene. Frericks was injured and transported to Overlake Hospital, along with her child, who was not injured.

Leavitt was not injured and was booked into King County jail.

Police say that alcohol or drugs were involved.
