LINCOLN CITY (AP) — Oregon State Police say a pedestrian was struck and killed by a suspected drunk driver near Lincoln City.

Lt. Cari Boyd says 43-year-old Thomas Wilson of Otis died at scene Tuesday night on U.S. Highway 101.

He had been hit by a 1990 Chevrolet Suburban driven by 71-year-old Herbert Ware of Otis. Boyd says Ware was arrested for driving while under the influence of intoxicants.
