Brian Senter, a high school drama teacher, was killed in a vehicle accident Saturday by a well-known public figure.

The Walla Walla High School educator was walking down the road around 10 p.m. when he was accidentally struck by Jim Kuntz, the Port of Walla Walla Executive Director. No drugs or alcohol are suspected at this time but sheriff officials are investigating the accident.

The 50-year-old teacher died later at the hospital. Vigils are planned for Monday.
