A 7-year-old Pendleton boy was listed this morning as improved and in good condition after running into a moving vehicle at about 5:30 p.m. Sunday on I-84. Jerry L. Lutcavich of Pendleton sustained a broken left leg and was transported by Pendleton Ambulance to St. Anthony Hospital where he was admitted. The driver of the vehicle, Tanya A. Hunt, 25, of Pendleton, was not injured. Lutcavich was attempting to retrieve a bike tire that had rolled into the eastbound lanes of the freeway near the Denny’s exit. Hunt was westbound at an undetermined speed when she saw Lutcavich run onto the roadway. Hunt swerved in her 1989 Nisan Sentra, but Lutcavich did not see the vehicle and continued running across the freeway. Lutcavich ran into the passenger side of the car and its rear tire appeared to run over his left leg. There were no citations issued.
