News Release
Deputies Respond to Vehicle Versus Pedestrian Fatality - 08/09/19

On August 8th and approximately 10:45 pm, the Sheriff’s Office was dispatched to a reported vehicle versus pedestrian crash in the 7500 block of Lakeside Drive NE.  Soon after emergency services arrived on scene the pedestrian was pronounced as deceased. 

The involved driver, a 16-year-old male from Keizer, remained on scene and called 911 after the collision.  The pedestrian has not yet been identified.

Based upon initial information, investigators believe the pedestrian was walking in the roadway at the time they were struck by the vehicle.  The driver is cooperating with investigators; alcohol does not appear to have been a factor.

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted during the initial response by Marion County Fire District #1.  This is still an open investigation.
