Ore. teen pedestrian killed on dark road
Question of the Day
EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Police say a pickup truck driver trying to steer safely around three people on the shoulder of a highway near Lowell fatally struck a 15-year-old girl in the middle of the dark road.
Lt. Steve Mitchell says the 57-year-old male driver from Dexter was northbound on the Jasper-Lowell Road on Wednesday evening when he saw three people on the roadside, on a bike, a scooter and a skateboard.
The spokesman says the driver veered to the left to safely avoid the trio, only to collide with the girl. The driver immediately stopped and provided first aid until medics arrived.
Mitchell says the girl’s injuries were fatal. She was not immediately identified.
The pickup driver is cooperating with investigators.
Lowell is southeast of Eugene.
