A Washington man who pulled over to the shoulder of Highway 86 near Baker City Friday evening to check his tires was hit and killed by a vehicle that crossed the fog line.

Dennis Tim Cheney, 59, of Walla Walla, died at the scene just east of Interstate 84, according to Oregon State Police.

The driver of the vehicle that hit Cheney, Adrienne Marie Larsen, 32, of Boise, was charged with driving under the influence of intoxicants, first- and second-degree manslaughter, reckless endangerment and criminally negligent homicide.

Larsen is in the Baker County Jail. Her bail was set at $252,500.

The accident happened about 5:12 p.m., after Cheney parked his 1998 Dodge pickup truck and flatbed trailer on the westbound shoulder of Highway 86 to check the air pressure in his trailer tires, according to Oregon State Police.

Larsen, who was driving westbound in a 2016 Jeep SUV, crossed the fog line and hit Cheney.

Larsen was not hurt.

Highway 86, which leads east to the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center, Richland, Halfway and Hells Canyon, was closed for about four hours.

State Police were assisted by the Oregon Department of Transportation, Baker County Sheriff’s Office, Baker City Fire Department, Baker Rural Fire Protection District, and the Baker County District Attorney’s Office.
