Pedestrian hit by car in Rockwood out of hospital

A Portland man who was critically injured June 13, when he was hit by a car in Rockwood has been released from the hospital.

Robert Eugene Weaver, 35, was crossing East Burnside Road at 197th Avenue in a crosswalk, but against the light at 1:24 p.m., when an eastbound vehicle struck him, said Lt. Claudio Grandjean, Gresham Police spokesman.

Paramedics transported Weaver to Oregon Health & Science University with critical injuries. As of late last week, he'd been upgraded to serious condition and over the weekend was released.

Drug, alcohol or speed do not appear to be factors in the accident, Grandjean said. The driver cooperated with the investigation, and no citations have been issued.

The accident happened on the same day Gresham traffic officers conducted pedestrian-safety patrols near Centennial High School on Southeast 182nd Avenue.
