Three Estacada Junior High teens hit by car

A vehicle reportedly struck three teenage girls as they walked in the crosswalk between Estacada High School and Junior High School around 8:40 a.m. Wednesday, March 12.

The Sandy Police Department, which provides service in Estacada, responded to the scene.

Officer Samuel Craven said that to his knowledge, none of the girls appeared to be seriously injured.

However, the girls, ages 13 and 14, all went to the hospital for evaluation.

The driver, Alberto Rojas, 23, of Beavercreek, stayed at the scene and cooperated with authorities.

Craven said that Rojas had been on the way to a jobsite in Cascadia Ridge that he had never been to before and was looking for the high school as a landmark.

Rojas’ lack of familiarity with the area and a strong glare probably contributed to the accident, Craven said.

Rojas was cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
