EPHRATA — A man from Moses Lake was seriously injured Monday night after he was struck by a vehicle as he was walking his dirt bike across a highway near Ephrata.

About 10:45 p.m. Jose Rodriguez, 35, of Ephrata, was driving a 2008 Ford Edge west on state Route 282 approaching Airport Road as Shawn McMorran, 45, of Moses Lake, was walking his dirt bike across SR-282.
