Family of man killed on highway asking for public's help

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- The family of the man who was struck and killed by a semi-truck earlier this week is asking for your help.

Family and friends say Charlie Robertson, 20, was walking along I-82, near Union Gap, trying to get help, when he was hit by the truck.

His funeral is on Tuesday and the family is trying to raise money to bring his grandparents from out of state.

They say the East Valley High School graduate was a fun-loving man who will be dearly missed.

"He wad definitely a good kid. I mean, fun to be around, a jokester at that. He was very passionate, very caring.">

The family has set up a Memorial Fund through Banner Bank.

All you have to do is visit any Banner Branch and donate to the Charles E. Robertson or Merry Melody Moon Fund.
