A man who was killed after being struck by two vehicles on a Fife road has been identified as James Taitano.
Police believe Taitano, 37, of Tacoma, was walking across the 2300 block of Pacific Highway East when an off-duty King County sheriff’s deputy hit him about 2 a.m. Friday.
A second vehicle also struck the man.
There are no crosswalks or streetlights in that area, and investigators said Deputy Cesar Molina didn’t see Taitano in the road.
Never miss a local story.
The deputy was placed on administrative leave after the accident, which is standard procedure.
