News Release
Vehicle Hits and Kills Pedestrian - 10/12/17

At 7:00pm on October 12, 2017, a 60-year-old Corvallis man was struck and killed on NE Circle Blvd near NE Belvue St. The man was walking along the fog line of NE Circle Blvd wearing dark colored clothing, when he was struck by a Ford Expedition driven by a 56-year-old Albany resident who was traveling eastbound on NE Circle Blvd. The male was transported to Good Samaritan Hospital where he died from injuries sustained in the crash.

The driver has cooperated fully with the crash investigators and at this time, drugs and/or alcohol, as well as distracted driving, are not suspected to be factors in the crash. The location of the crash was poorly lit, and visibly was low due to the weather. The driver has not been charged with any violations or crimes related to the crash. Traffic flow on NE Circle Blvd was limited for several hours as the investigation unfolded.

The identity of the pedestrian is being withheld until next of kin can be notified.
