PEDESTRIAN HIT AND KILLED BY VEHICLE
Posted: January 23rd, 2010 8:53 PM
Tonight at 7:20 p.m., Portland Police Officers responded to the area of 122nd and Foster on a call that a pedestrian had been struck by a vehicle. When the officers arrived, they found a deceased a 44-year-old man at the scene. The driver of the vehicle that hit the pedestrian remained at the scene and cooperated with police.
The Major Crash Team responded and are investigating this incident. Investigators have determined that the pedestrian was crossing south to north and the driver was traveling westbound on 122nd when the accident occurred. Witnesses reported that the pedestrian was not in a crosswalk and walked in front of one car before walking in front of the vehicle that hit him. Investigators do not believe speed or alcohol was a factor in this incident and the driver is not being cited.
The name of the deceased man is not being released at this time.
