RENO, Nev. (KOLO) The man killed Saturday night after being hit while walking on Interstate 580 north of Mill Street has been identified as Francisco Tolentino, 61, of Reno.

Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Matt Matt McLaughlin said Tolentino was in the fast lane of I-580 and was hit once by a vehicle and then after he came to rest he was hit again.

It's still not clear why Tolentino was on the freeway, McLaughlin said. There were no vehicle stopped near by. It appears Tolentino made his way onto the freeway from a surface street, McLaughlin said.
It happened around 8 p.m. April 6, 2019 on I-580 southbound near the Mill Street exit.
