Rhode Island man killed running across highway

A Rhode Island man who got out of a pickup truck and ran across a highway after an argument was struck and killed by an oncoming vehicle, Massachusetts state police said Sunday.

Police said Ulise Pena, 47, of Pawtucket, R.I., was a passenger in a truck traveling west on Route 195 in Swansea early Saturday evening when he got in an argument with the driver. The driver, a 51-year-old man from Providence, pulled over, and the victim got out and ran across the highway to the eastbound side.

The man was then struck and killed by a pickup truck driven by a 21-year-old Lincoln, R.I., man.

The crash remains under investigation.
